Lakeview Pantry exists because of the support of our neighbors.

For every $1 we receive, we are able to provide 8 meals to needy individuals.

$50 helps provide nutritious meals for family of 4 for 2 months. $100 helps provide 800 meals for your neighbors. $250 helps provide individualized social services for a client for a year.

You can be confident that however you decide to give to Lakeview Pantry, your gift will have an immediate impact in the lives of your neighbors. Read more about how your gift is put to use here.
