Loveland Inter-Faith Effort L.I.F.E.

Loveland Inter-Faith Effort (L.I.F.E.) was organized in 1998 by a group of individuals supported by area churches and the Loveland-Symmes Fire Department as a food pantry to serve clients in the Loveland School District. The organization obtained 501(c)3 status and is now supported by 9 area churches, the Loveland Schools, area businesses, and the community at large.

Our main focus continues to be the Food Pantry. On average, 246 families, or about 495 individuals, visit the pantry each month. Eligibility for our programs is based on Federal guidelines using an income to family size ratio. Most of our pantry items come from individual contributions and local food drives. In an effort to target what is needed at the pantry, a weekly e-mail is sent to over 130 community individuals and several churches. To sign up to receive the weekly e-mail, contact us at lifefoodpantry@yahoo.com
