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.
Pastor Buddy Walker will be coordinating the dispersing of food from Lake Cares Food Pantry. He is also the lead for the distribution site at the Eustis Bates Neighborhood Resource Center.
More than 11% of the seniors Lake Cares serves come from Tavares. This site will help those with transportation issues, according to Irene O’Malley, Executive Director of Lake Cares. The new location is next to Lake Pointe Senior Apartments. A subsidized complex for families is also close to the distribution site. Many work full-time jobs and still cannot make ends meet. This new location will bring much-needed relief and comfort.
Pastor Buddy and his Empowers Organic Buyers Club has partnered with Lake Cares for more than 6 years providing seasonal organic vegetables. This produce is distributed to Lake Cares clients so that they receive nutritious locally grown food.
