Lake Concert Band Announces Benefit Concert for Lake Cares

We are excited to announce this year the Lake Concert Band will once again hold a FREE benefit holiday concert on our behalf. We look forward to hearing various holiday favorites such as Canadian Brass Christmas Suite, Sleigh Ride, Celtic Carol, and Go Tell It on The Mountain. Monetary donations will be collected during the concert to benefit Lake Cares Food Pantry.

A special thank you goes out to the City of Mount Dora, for donating the space to hold this amazing fundraising event.

Quick and Easy Hash browns by Ze Carter

I love potatoes, they are perfect for feeding any family large or small. Potatoes are very versatile as well. Over the years, potatoes have gotten a bad reputation when it comes to nutrition but these brown beauties are full of Vitamin B and Vitamin C and one medium-size potato has only 110 calories. Did you know that a potato has more potassium than a banana? Yes, it is true, adding a potato to your diet is really not that bad for you after all. 

Homemade blueberry muffins by Ze Carter for Lake Cares Food Pantry's Panty to Plate Blog

I love spring because it means that even though we are nearing the end of orange and strawberry season Mother Nature does not want us to feel blue but to eat it. Yes, it is blueberry season and the local u-pick farms are ready. All I can say is the early bird gets the blueberry pancakes, muffins, and pie.

Speaking of muffins, if you are like me as soon as you get your hands on some fresh blueberries you turn the oven on. The word muffin is not complete if the word blueberry is not in front of it

Lake Cares Food Pantry is again blessed to have the continued support of Main Street Leasing, the United Way and the community for the Summer Feeding Program for Children. This much needed 9-week program tackles hunger insecurities during the weeks when school is not in session.

One of our clients by the name of Janet, who at 75 years old received custody of her 5 great grandchildren.

“My husband Larry and I went to from being alone to getting my great grandchildren because their parents died within days of each other,” Janet said.

It is with great excitement Lake Cares Food Pantry opens a satellite distribution site at Faith Christian Fellowship Church, 1951 Dora Avenue, Tavares, Florida. 

The once a month distribution will be held from 10a.m.-12p.m. on the first Saturday of each month.
