Lake Cares offers individuals and businesses a number of opportunities to help Lake County residents who are unable to meet their needs for food and personal care items. We know that it's important to you that your donation goes to feed and serve people. 96% of your donation dollar will go directly to those in need in our community.

We have several options to choose from and Lake Cares Food Pantry makes donating hassle-free! 

Regular and One Time Donations

You can donate online by setting up a monthly auto-deduct program from your checking account through our online processing page or you can donate a 1-time gift online. All transactions are secure. In all cases, you will receive a receipt.


If you prefer writing a check you can mail your donation directly to us. Please make your checks payable to Lake Cares, Inc., and mail to 2001 W. Old Hwy 441, Ste 1, Mount Dora, FL 32757 

Tributes and Memorial Gifts

Tribute gifts honor someone special with a donation that fights hunger. Honorary and memorial gifts provide a special opportunity to celebrate achievements, milestones and a life.

Legacy Gifts

Join our "Will to End Hunger Society" by making a planned gift to Lake Cares Food Pantry. By naming Lake Cares, Inc. as a beneficiary of your will or insurance policy, you will leave a legacy that gives much-needed food to feed the hungry for years to come.

We suggest consulting your attorney to go over the details of your estate plan first, then contact Lake Cares. 

Please call us about your tribute, memorial or legacy gift. Our executive director, Irene O'Malley, will be happy to speak with you!

Lake Cares is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization, so all of your donations are tax deductible. Please check with your accountant on questions concerning your personal tax deductions and donations.
