A special thank you to our Lake Cares Food Pantry donors. Without your support, we would not be able to do the things we do in our community and help the people who are in need. Lake Cares Food Pantry is solely dependent on, and greatly appreciate the financial support of the Lake County community. If you have ever wondered what we do with the donations we get, here is a short video to explain! Thank You!!


Lake Cares Food Pantry served 365,000 pounds of food to 29,219 individuals in 2016. Janet, one of our clients tells her story and how Lake Cares has impacted her life! Serving Janet and all the others, is largely due to the generous donations we receive from those who care in our community. Thank you!

Our volunteers do so many things around the pantry and there is no better way to find out exactly what they do, than to hear it from them. We'd like you to Meet Art, one of our long time volunteers. LISTEN to his story and then think of how you might be able to share some of your talents and your time with us by volunteering at the pantry!

Get the answers to these questions and more with this short video from Assistant Director, Becky Carter, as she starts your journey in "Volunteering 101".

It was national "Scouting For Food" week and Lake Cares Food Pantry in Mount Dora, FL had a visit from the three scouting programs from St. Patrick Catholic Church. The Cubs, Boy Scouts and Venturing spent their Saturday morning picking up food from the area, holding a Community Food Drive. We could not have been more surprised and grateful for their efforts. If you are interested in holding your own Food Drive for Lake Cares Food Pantry, please give us a call at 352-383-0100
