UWLC Feed Lake County Campaign
Feed Lake County with Moving Ahead Services
From Now until April 16th, Moving Ahead Services is hosting a food drive in partnership with United Way of Lake County and their Feed Lake County campaign. In 2015 Lifeline 211 received about 9,000 calls for food assistance in the area – up 78% from 2011. Feed Lake County provided over 200,000 meals to children, families and seniors in 2015.
Feed Lake County $1 Donation Equals 4 Meals
For a struggling family, child or senior in our area, just $1 provides 4 meals. Roughly 1 of every 10 Lake County residents is living in poverty. 1 in 8 of those being children, and 1 in 5 are seniors. The need is more prevalent than ever before.
The food and monetary donations raised during the UWLC Annual Feed Lake County provide for more than 50 pantries and agencies in Lake County.
