Welcome to We Care!

Fighting Hunger and Poverty

Founded in 2004, We Care is an unfunded 501(c)(3) whose mission is to support our neighbors in need in every way we can. Since it’s inception, We Care has been on the front lines of hunger relief. Our trucks are always on the road recovering food from grocery stores throughout the area, but our work doesn’t stop there. We realize that household items can sometimes double a family’s grocery bill, so we are constantly collecting laundry detergents, cleaning supplies, and hygiene products to redistribute to the community.

Our expanded mission is to not only fight hunger in our community, but also the plight of poverty that ravages many in our country. A large sector of the people we serve have full time employment but do not earn enough to take care of their family’s basic needs and we are working to fill those gaps. We are sitting down with our clients to find out what they need and to further understand the struggles they are facing. They guide us in the direction we should be going to help them in whatever ways they need and we are always working on new programs and initiatives to better serve our neighbors in need.

News and Upcoming Events

We Care Food Pantry is very happy to announce the acquisition of the Hunger Relief Complex located on W. Cardinal Street by the Community Food Bank.  We Care Food Pantry has also donated over $340,000 worth of food, warehouse equipment, racking and a cooler/freezer to Community Food Bank in addition to selling the complex at a greatly reduced price in order to keep We Care’s vision of a hunger relief complex alive.  This complex was designed and built by Diane Toto to feed the people of Citrus County and We Care is thrilled that it will continue to do so.    

After 20 years, We Care is closing its doors.  We would like to give a great big THANK YOU to all our community partners and donors.  It has been an honor serving all who are in need in Citrus County.  We’ve made many cherished relationships and friendships along the way, but what we will miss the most are the extraordinary people we have served. 

We wish all of you many blessings!
