Mission: Food backpack program and food recovery program
Programs: One service program we have is citrus county blessings. Through donations, fund raisers and food donations the program feeds children in elementary schools in citrus county who have demonstrated the need for the program. We provide food for approximately 1047 childreen each weekend. Results of the program that have operated for at least one full year show dramatic effects that are attributed directly tothe program. Children show improvement in attendance, test scores and good behavior.
our program services are citrus county harvest and citrus county blessings. The harvest program through food recovery efforts, collected 12400 pounds of food during the current fiscal year to support those agencies who serve the poor and needy families in citrus county. Our numbers of donated food reduced dramatically this year due to us turning over the post office food drive to the community food bank.
