Human Care Network

Responding to the rise in the number of people with the urgent basic need for food, United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties, Inc. supports a Human Care Network of agencies that include 14 food pantries strategically selected throughout Lake and Sumter Counties. Each month these food pantries serve 12,000 lbs of food to 2,020 local residents, on average.

Residents in need of food can call 2-1-1 or 877-431-3668 to learn about the food pantries available in your area.
