About the Little Elm Area Food Bank: 
The Little Elm Area Food Bank began in 1984 when founder Pearl Gentsch requested cans of food for the poor instead of gifts for her birthday. The Lawrence/McWhorter Foundation managed operations for several years and added a resale shop. The Little Elm Area Food Bank service area includes Hackberry, Little Elm, Lakewood Village, Oak Point, Crossroads south of Highway 380, Hill Town, Navo, and all additional areas served by the Little Elm Independent School District. As the Town of Little Elm’s only social service agency, the Little Elm Area Food Bank is critical to the Little Elm community. The LEAFB gives peace of mind to area families in crisis as it provides for their emergency food needs. For more information about the LEAFB, please visit their site at www.leafb.org.
