probably Qd5+ kh8 f3
this saves the f pawn temporarily
although this position is difficult to defend .....
Qb3+ force queen trade to release the overwhelming pressure of the position.
Sadly white is very likely still going to lose, probably forced to sac the bishop to handle those pawns, then play for a draw being a piece down.
I do not think the pawn can be saved, leaving black 2 connected passers headed for home.
