Lake County Florida food pantries.

Food banks in Lake County Florida provide meals, free groceries, and other aid to families and individuals who need help. A focus is on children and senior citizens in the region. People can call a pantry for clothing, free food, perishable items, holiday assistance, and general advice. While the center may not have what you need, they can often refer individuals to other charities or non-profits across Lake County and Leesburg Florida.

Each center will have its own services, and items distributed can include emergency food boxes, fruits, vegetables, breads, milk, and baby formula, among other items. Some locations distribute government surplus items, or can help people apply for food stamps or WIC.

Florida and Lake County have been hit hard by the weak economy and housing crisis and many people are asking for help for the very first time. Your local food bank can be a great resource to call for help in a time of need.
