ICSL Driving Out Hunger in 2018...

  • ​3,125 individuals from 1128 households served.

  • 678,566 pounds of food distributed, nearly 1 ton per day.

  • A grant from Shadow Wood Foundation purchased 31,788 pounds of fresh produce to provide healthier food options for clients. The grant also funded our Garden of Fellowship at Hope Presbyterian Church. The garden provided an additional 544 pounds of herbs and vegetables.

  • We receive weekly deliveries from Harry Chapin Food Bank and monthly deliveries from Midwest Food Bank.

  • 291 households received Thanksgiving meals.

  • 113 children attended our Free Summer Lunch Program. They enjoyed meals and daily activities including a reading program. Funding for activities, and Barnes and Noble gift cards, were courtesy of Terre Verde Social Club.  Each family also took home fresh fruits and vegetables on Mondays, and dairy and protein on Fridays. This food distribution was funded by a Shadow Wood Charitable Foundation grant.

  • We held our first Veteran’s Workshop. Guest speaker from FL Dept. of VA services gave a presentation and provided avenues that veterans can access for additional services.

  • Our financial programs helped a record number of people.

  • $42,600 from a United Way Grant provided clients financial aid that paid 173 utility bills, rent or mortgage payments, and food purchases.

  • 347 people attended budget classes.

  • 742 tax returns were prepared = $1,016,726 in refunds.

  • ​Other

  • Our outdated computer system was completely overhauled, new computers were purchased, software upgraded and we computerized the client intake desk. Funding provided by Charitable Foundations from Shadow Wood, West Bay, and Spring Run.

  • A large screen tv was installed in the client waiting area and runs a slideshow featuring programs and resources available to our clients. Funding by West Bay Charitable Foundation.

  • All of this work done by 420 volunteers (22,505 services hours), 3 full-time, and 2 part-time employees.

And none of this would have been accomplished without theremarkable support from this community.
