Our Challenge Today…More space for more food, and better efficiency

Lake Cares must expand and consolidate operations to not only meet the demand, but to operate in a more efficient, cost effective and timely manner.  Currently Lake Cares is providing over 1.5 million pounds of food per year and serving more than 18,000 families compared to 2009 when providing food to 25 families each week seemed unattainable.

This is the first time in the history of Lake Cares that it has undertaken a capital campaign to garner the necessary funds to build or buy a facility.  The need for a larger space was so evidenced that a decision was made to save the time and expense of a Feasibility Study and to move forward with a capital campaign to begin raising the needed funds for a new facility.

Help Children in Our Community

Our Summer Children’s Feeding Program provides breakfast and lunch to Lake County children experiencing food insecurity. Ensuring a consistent diet to growing children during the 10-week school break means they will receive the proper nutrition and will not go hungry.

Here’s how you can help:

Sponsor a child – $160.00 will provide breakfast, lunch, snacks, fresh fruit, milk and juice for the entire ten-week school break.

Your Donation of  $16.00 will provide breakfast, lunch, snacks, fresh fruit, milk and juice for one week during the school break.
