HISTORY and WORK
The Loon Lake Food Bank was started in 1980, in the trunk of a car and incorporated in 1983. We have grown from out of a car to a large building. The number of clients has also grown. We are serving an average of 1600 families per month.
We have developed from a very small food pantry to the largest food bank in Stevens, Pend Oreille and Ferry Counties.
Our expenses escalate annually and are met only by the generous support of caring friends, businesses and agencies.
Because of the generosity of our supporters, we are keeping pace with the goal that there will be not one hungry child, adult or senior, in our geographic area.
During our summer months, we participate in the Summer Lunch Program by providing breakfast and lunches to the children in the community in need of meals when school is not in operation.
