The Lake Country Food Bank is speaking out about misconceptions in accessing its services.

The organization posted a video to Facebook to educate the community.

“People are afraid we’re going to ask all their financial information and how they came to need the food bank.”

But that’s not the case.

“What we do ask is what is your source of income if you have one, do you reside in Lake Country, and those are basically your requirements.”

The food bank also requires identification.

Individuals and families can register online.

The food bank distributes food hampers once a month to clients which includes both fresh and nonperishable items. Dietary needs, baby formula, and pet food can be requested and the organization does its best to accommodate everyone’s needs.
