Lake Cares Food Pantry is thankful and pleased for the continued support of Main Street Leasing, the United Way and the community during the “Summer Feeding Program for Children.” This year’s program fed more than 1600 children from June 14th - August 2nd.
Main Street Leasing matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000 in monetary donations. Many Lake Cares Food Pantry volunteers were involved. Mount Dora Christian Academy sent students along with volunteers from Watson Realty in Mount Dora. Our Lake Cares Food Pantry distribution site provided three breakfasts, lunches, fruit, snacks and drinks each week for each child. The success of the program closes the gap of hunger when school is out. Hunger insecurity for many children in our communities was avoided due to the generosity of so many caring individuals and partnerships.
