In 2010, we helped 7,661 individuals and 2,366 families —3,308 were children. The Caring Center experienced an increase of 11% in the amount of food it distributed from 2009 to 2010. Over 70 tons of food was distributed to needy families right here in Boone County.
The Caring Center has made several improvements to its food pantry. A new cooler now allows the distribution of fresh dairy products to clients. In addition, a very generous donor paid for the installation of an industrial size freezer unit so that The Caring Center can now receive and store frozen food, including meat in large quantities, for the first time. The cooler and the freezer are key parts of The Caring Center's work to improve the quality of the food it provides clients.
