In 2014, Macon County's Care Network distributed 480,920 pounds of food. To put that into perspective, if every one of the 35,000 residents in the entire county received a portion of last year's food allotment, each resident would receive about 14 pounds.

CareNet programs include the food pantry and Soup Cafe located on Bidwell Street which accounts for about 28,000 pounds of food for 2014. With a focus on our county's youth, CareNet distributed 16,486 back packs to students in Macon County who have been identified as food insecure or "at risk."
