LFS|US & AMS Food Bank collaboration – Food Drive! Oct 20-31

Feeling thankful and want to give back? LFS|US and AMS Food Bank are collaborating to host a Food Drive from Oct 20-31! All proceeds will go towards the AMS Food Bank. We will be giving away small prizes in recognition of your generous donations.

Wednesday Night Dinners on October 22 & Oct 29: If you donate 5 non-perishable items or more, you will receive a free dinner from LFS|US, OR a complementary LFS re-useable bag.

We will also be having office hours at our LFS|US Office during the two weeks. If you donate 5 non-perishable items or more, you will be able to receive a LFS bag! We have a limited quantity, so don’t wait!

Office Hours: Wed Oct 22: 9-5 pm, Thurs Oct 23: 11-5pm, Fri Oct 24: 9-4pm

Suggested Donations: Pasta and canned proteins (beans, fish, etc). rice, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, and pasta sauces are extremely popular at the AMS Food Bank, but would greatly appreciate anything that is unopened or undamaged!

Why are we doing this?

We are trying to raise awareness about food security on campus, and let students know that the AMS Food Bank is a service that they can access if needed. We are also looking for volunteers for future events that the AMS Food Bank will be hosting, like Food for Fines and their annual Christmas Hampers. We will have a sign up sheet at our Wednesday Night Dinners if you would like to be on the mailing list!

If you have any questions: Please e-mail lfsus.vpexternal@landfood.ubc.ca
