Community Food Drive for Martin Luther King Day of Service

January 20 & 21, 2019

This year to commemorate Martin Luther King’s life and legacy, Lafayette Village residents contributed 285 pounds of food to the ACCA Food Pantry, a local food bank.

For our upcoming Martin Luther King Day collection on January 20 & 21, 2019, we challenge the community to contribute more!

We are looking to collect the following types of food:

  • Canned meats – ham, chicken, tuna, or beef
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Peanut butter and jelly/jam
  • Boxed meals
  • Canned soup, stew, and chili
  • Pasta and sauce
  • Cereal Corn meal (Masa harina)
  • Canned vegetables
  • Rice
  • Canned fruit
  • Fruit juice
  • Coffee and tea
  • Beans – dried or canned

Please, no expired foods or partially opened packages of food.

Please bring your donations to the Pool House at the following times:

  • Sunday, January 20, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Monday, January 21, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

A Board member or volunteer should be present to accept your donations. If no one is around, please leave them in the marked box at the front of the pool house.

Again this year, we will donate our food to the ACCA Food Pantry to assist needy residents living in Mason District. To learn more about how ACCA helps Mason District, view a video at https://youtu.be/XiaVuel27ZI.
