Good food builds good nutrition, which builds healthy living. Yet, the average price of a fast food meal is far less than a meal cooked with fresh veggies. If you are struggling to buy good food or are in a situation in which all food has become not something you can afford, there are many resources in both Lake and Sumter County. The below list of Food Bank and Food Pantries in our communities will be of value. This list is updated regularly, but please do call your resource of choice first, to ensure current hours, availability, or guidelines for distribution.
