Lake City-based Hunger Intervention Program (HIP) works to bring food to local families and now seniors through its Healthy HIP Packs Program, meal programs, and by advocating for our hungry neighbors.
HIP’s volunteers and staff are back at North Helpline Food Bank each week, showing how to make healthy dishes easy and delicious. Check back here on The HIP Stockpot for new recipes each week.
