We provide weekly food distribution to adults, children, and seniors who are negatively impacted by food insecurity. Dare to Care is addressing food insecurity through our primary initiatives: (1) Provide groceries to seniors, adults, and children each week, (2) provide groceries for a complete Thanksgiving dinner, including a turkey with all the fixings to over 3,000 families, and (3) partner with other local community agencies to address social, health, spiritual, and financial needs. DTC is located in the City of Lauderhill, Florida, which has been identified by census data as having a poverty rate of 19.1%.
Broward County has been identified as an area where food insecurity is a reality that many residents face daily. According to the most recent Census Bureau data, in Broward County, 15.5 percent of the population—281,940 people—goes days or more without access to enough food to be active and healthy.
Dare to Care is a Partner Agency (PA) with Farm Share, Feeding South Florida, and a Gateway Community Outreach choice pantry where clients can choose the food that they want. Dare to Care, Inc. was established as an outreach ministry founded by The Faith Center Ministries in Sunrise, Florida. In 2018, DTC was established as a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. We are fortunate to continue our partnership with TFC.
Our organization was established to provide help for those in need.
Dare to Care is a volunteer organization. We need YOU! Fifty volunteers are needed to adequately staff the pantry each week. All volunteers attend regular training and are provided with their roles and responsibilities. We follow CDC guidelines and practice all safety protocols.
Each week, we receive food and support from these organizations and our regular donors.
