We all go shopping at our favorite stores, pick up the items we use on a regular basis, come home, unpack and load into the pantry. We have a pantry of our own, probably larger than yours is, but we still need to fill it up. When you feed more than 200 families every week, the supplies dwindle.
Many of the stores you frequent have BOGO, we like to call it Buy one GIVE one, and we could surely use the “GIVE one” from your purchase.
Food donations can be made Monday thru Friday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and Saturday between 8:00 am and Noon.
For your convenience, we’ve provided a shopping list for your use, click here to download the Lake Cares Food Pantry Shopping List.
We are always in need of:
- Pasta and Spaghetti Sauce
- Canned meats and fish such as Tuna, Salmon, and Chicken
- Soups of every flavor
- Shelf Stable Milk such as Parmalat
- Baked Beans, Beans and Chili
- Baby Food
- Fresh produce and fruit
- Toothpaste and Toothbrushes
- Laundry and Dish Detergent
- Diapers for babies and adults
We ask that you check your food for expiration dates. We need to make sure we are giving our clients food they can use.
Food for Pets
Many seniors and families will feed their beloved pet before they feed themselves. Lake Cares Food Pantry accepts pet food donations and distributes pet food to clients with pets in need. All types of dog and cat food donations are greatly appreciated but please, no open packages.
