Lake Area Ministries, Inc. (LAM) is a non-profit, non-denominational, faith based organization that has served the people of the Lake Region area for over 25 years.
Our primary mission is to serve as a Food Pantry in our service area, which includes parts of Clay, Bradford, Putnam, and Alachua Counties. The boundaries are set in accordance with the school districts. We work in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and use their criteria to determine eligibility as set by Federal guidelines. We provide services regardless of race, religion, gender, age, disabilities, or national origin.
LAM serves more than 700 people a month and needs a lot of volunteers and donations each month.
You can serve with the Church on their monthly days by contacting the church office or you can sign up to help any time by contacting LAM Director Tanya Dennis (352-235-2385).
LAM is open for distribution Monday and Wednesday from 10am-1pm and on Thursday from 5pm-7pm. There is always something to do though so if you are able to help other times just let Tanya know.
