The Osceola County Council on Aging‘s Food Pantry is once again in desperate need for the community to help replenish its shelves. At least 80 local families rely on the food pantry each week to get by, and as you can imagine, the constant need at the COA depletes the pantry regularly, and quickly, so once again, supplies on the shelves are at record low levels.
By coming together, Osceola County can help the Council on Aging with its mission to end senior hunger and to serve all generations, and as a community, we CAN do it together. We can make a positive difference in Osceola County.
The Osceola Council On Aging is looking for canned and non-perishable food, as well as cereal and easy-to-prepare staples like spaghetti. Pet food for the furry friends of the families is also needed. All too often those in need will lovingly give their pets food they should be eating, and that’s not healthy for them, or their pets.
Donations can be taken directly to the Council on Aging at 700 Generation Point in Kissimmee, right off U.S. 192, or locally in downtown Kissimmee to the Draper Law Office at 705 Emmett Street. Lanier’s Historic Marketplace and Matador Tapas on Broadway and Duke’s Brewhouse in St. Cloud are also dropoff locations.
