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.

9630113141_5d84599506_oHunger Intervention Program (HIP) is serving FREE summer lunches to kids in the Lake City area this summer and we need your help!

We are looking for volunteers who love to prepare and serve delicious lunches, lead fun activities for kids, get the word out so we can feed more kids, transport meals & supplies in the HIP van, and so much more.

Last summer HIP shared nearly 5,000 meals with Lake City children and teens.  This summer we’re hoping to serve even more meals with your help.  Here are some great reasons to volunteer with us:

  • Be a part of a change you can see
  • Volunteer outside in the sun
  • A great way to earn service hours
  • Plenty of opportunities for both parents and kids
  • Kids and teens under 18 get a free meal with each shift
