Mission Statement

Lakeview Pantry strives to eliminate hunger in our community by: Providing food to fill the basic need of hungry people, increasing the independence of our clients through self-help initiatives and other innovative programs, and raising awareness of poverty and its solution.

Description

Since 1970, the Lakeview Pantry has been providing food for our neighbors in need. While our doors are open to all, the vast majority of those we serve within our neighborhood may be disabled, working for minimum wage, recently unemployed, or the elderly. Whatever the reason, we are here to help. Each year, over 700,000 pounds of food are provided to more than 18,000 people.
