A dedication of the Love Pantry at Winegard Elementary School was held to honor this most recent expansion of the project. Winegard’s Love Pantry is being sponsored by First United Methodist Church of Orlando’s End Childhood Hunger Task Force. The dedication is representative of the long-term support of the Center by First United Methodist Church of Orlando, as they were one of our founding churches back in 1971. The efforts behind this latest partnership was spearheaded by Lora Gilbert, OCPS Sr. Director, Food and Nutrition Services.
