Lake Cares and SO DO WE!
During our Friends & Family Sale, we are pledging a portion of each sale to support Lake Cares Food Pantry in Mount Dora.
Last year, we were able to support 4283 meals!
Lake Cares Inc., Food Pantry provides meals and resources to Lake County residents in need of assistance. During our Friends and Family Sales Event throughout August, we want to help those families right in our own community. With the current ieconomic conditions, you can imagine how many families are finding themselves in need for the first time.
Our monetary donation will allow Lake Cares more flexibility to purchase fruits and vegetables in bulk from local farmers. Lake Cares doesn't just pass out a box of canned goods. They provide customized food packs based on dietary needs. This includes fresh meat, dairy, fruits, and vegetables.
They could not do what we do without the support of a generous community and guidance of the Second Harvest Food Bank, which primarily acts as the storehouse for millions of pounds of food and other products distributed to Central Florida food pantries.
In 2020, they served 61,000 individuals, with approximately 65% being senior and disabled clients. Click here to visit Lake Cares website to learn more.
