The annual food drive for Care Corps LifeHouse in Fremont is back celebrating its 27th year! This annual program is a great way for the Fremont and surrounding community to help grow the food pantry inventory. This fundraiser targets the needs of our local low-income ministry, so they receive their primary food items by the caseloads.
We have been participating with area churches and the community for years. Last year, due to COVID-related grants, the food donation need was minimized, but now all this funding is gone. In previous years, we have been able to provide approximately 40,000 lbs. of food annually. 2023 continues to see an increase in the cost of food and food insecurity. We are excited to be able to help with this need.
This program does alleviate the process of the donor needing to drop off food, and we will not need to warehouse the donated food and find a way to get it delivered to LifeHouse. Please use the Care Corps Life House Venmo code to donate today! Care Corps LifeHouse has been able to provide food to programs such as Aspire and Pathfinder, as well.
