Pantry Now Accepting Holiday Food Donations

  Hurricane Irma took it's toll on the Lady Lake area, leaving the pantry without power for a full week.  Without any power, we were forced to close.  During that time we unfortunately lost all perishable goods in our freezers and refrigerators.  Thanks to our generous community, we did have reserve funds to continue to provide frozen meat to our clients.  Plans are in place to look into generators to at least keep lights and some cold storage capacity up and running should there be the need in the future.

   God blesses our pantry daily!  Even with this little setback, we assisted 309 families during the month of September.  To date this year we have provided 3,119 families with over 9,000 bags of groceries!

   Now, it is time to collect for our Thanksgiving and Christmas Basket donations.  Each year we provide Turkeys or Hams and all the fixings to our families for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  You may help by donating any of the following items by November 1st or December 1st respectively.

Boxed Holiday Desert
Boxed Cornbread Mix
Boxed Jell-O / Pudding Mix
Boxed or Bagged Turkey Stuffing Mix
Boxed Mashed Potatoes / Sweet Potatoes Mixes
Canned Vegetables (Corn, Green Beans, Yams)
Canned Cranberries (Jellied or Whole)
Canned Cream of Mushroom Soup
Canned Fruit (Mandaran Oranges, Pineapple)
Evaporated Milk
French Fried Onion Topping
Frozen Turkeys / Hams

The week prior to the holiday, we can also accept fresh potatoes, sweet potatoes etc.

   Thank you in advance for your continued support of the Christian Food Pantry.  You are indeed a blessing to many in need.
