Take 10 minutes today to complete your census and encourage others to do the same! Why is this important? The 2020 Census will be used to allocate more than $675 billion annually to communities across our nation. In Indiana, an accurate census count means up to $30,000 per person in federal funding that our state will receive over the course of the next decade. This federal funding will go towards programs that support education, healthcare, housing, transportation, emergency services, and more within our community. Everyone counts- regardless of immigration status. When is the deadline? The deadline is September 30th, 2020. Does the Census have to be mailed in? Nope! You can complete the Census completely online! Complete your 2020 Census here: https://2020census.gov/en.html

A common question we've been getting is if students need to be present to receive a meal. It is recommended that your student attends meal pickup, however, we understand that in some circumstances that is not possible. If your student cannot come with you during pickup, you will still be able to receive the number of meals you need.
This afternoon we will work on creating bags of nonperishable food items from Felix's Pantry for families to take during our two food pickup dates (3/17 and 3/30). If you're interested in making a monetary donation or donating nonperishable items, these can be dropped off at the LCSC Administration Building located at 2829 George St. Monday-Friday between the hours of 7 am-4 pm. Questions? Please contact Bailey Record at 574.722.2911 ext. 10014. *These bags will be given in addition to the meals LCSC Food Service is preparing for families in need of additional items. Bags are limited by the amount of food we currently have in Felix's Pantry.
We've recieved questions about how and where community members can to go to help families while school is not in session. We are working on how we can make donations in Felix's Pantry available to students and their families during this time and creating times for community members to donate items to the pantry if they are able to. Once we navigate through this, we will share more information.
