Free food is available to seniors living in Lake County on the third Friday of every month.

The food is available at two locations in the city of Baldwin and handed out on a first come, first served basis. Food for 100 families is available.

The first location is at St. Ann’s Senior Center from 1 to 2 pm. St Ann’s is located at 650 East 9th Street. The second location is the Baldwin High School parking lot from 2 to 3 pm. Baldwin High School is located at 525 4th Street. Seniors get first priority, but after 60 seniors have received food, then any family living in Lake County may also receive food.

The food available varies each month, but previous food offered in the program includes fresh vegetables such as potatoes, cabbage, onions, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce and Brussels sprouts. Juice, yogurt and even poptarts have been offered as well.

Yates Dial -A-Ride can provide transportation for anyone needing a ride to either location. You can call (231) 745-731 or email vgant@yatesdialaride.com They offer continuous shuttle service from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm every week day.

The program began in April this year and both times there was food left over that no senior or family claimed. If you know a senior or family who could use this food, tell them about this opportunity. The next date food will be available is this Friday, June 19, 2015.
