LaFOLLETTE—Food Life Services celebrated its 20th anniversary last week. Food Life Services incorporated July 13, 1993, and opened its doors in August that year.
Food Life Services brings in about 4,000 pounds of food a week and distributes about 2,000 bags of groceries a week.
“Our purpose is to give free emergency food to any Campbell County resident who feels they are in need,” said Jim Holtslag, FLS treasurer.
Food Life Services is a non-profit agency with about 35 volunteers. It’s funded mostly by grants. However, churches and individuals also make donations. Food Life Services also collects food raised in food drives.
It’s located at the East LaFollette Community Center and is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and Friday.
