Featured Program: Feinstein Million Dollar Challenge – Food for Thought

TLC Feinstein

Tri Lakes Cares will participate again in the annual Feinstein Challenge during the moths of March and April. All donations to the Pantry – food and monetary – are especially significant during these two months.

Founded in 1991 by Alan Shawn Feinstein, the Feinstein Foundation is dedicated to the alleviation of hunger, the importance of community service in education and the values of caring, compassion and brotherhood. Every year, one million dollars is distributed among participating anti-hunger agencies across the US. For more information about the foundation and Mr. Feinstein, visit:

For every pound of food and every dollar donated to Tri Lakes Cares for the Pantry in March and April,the Foundation donates a percentage of the one million dollars, based on the total we take in during that time period.

So, this is a great time to consider planning a food drive or fundraiser for our Pantry. Please contact JP Galusky, Food Programs Manager, for more information and support to hold a food drive in March or April. We have materials here to help you.

Help us make every can and dollar count even MORE for our clients in March and April!
