Food for Friends

During October, LICS is hosting the Food for Friends food drive challenge at schools and businesses in Lexington County.

2016 WINNERS: Gilbert Primary and Lexington United Methodist Church 

Summer months leave our food pantry extremely bare, as families and children are home for meals that our schools provide during the school year. The need for food in the next few months is critical, especially with the holidays approaching.

This year, LICS is hosting the 4th annual “Food for Friends” school and business food drive challenge. We hope that your school or organization will choose to participate and help us reach the families and children in need right here in Lexington County- because LICS understands that hunger does not choose a neighborhood, a school district, or even a town.

The week of October 23rd-27th, 2017 is the week that we have designated as the Challenge week. Schools or organizations participating are welcome to choose a different week, or even collect during the entire month. However, only those participating during this week will be eligible to win the Food for Friends challenge.

We will provide barrels for collection, and you can either deliver the food to LICS, or we are happy to pick up. There will be 2 winners: The school with the most pounds collected, and the organization/business/church with the most pounds collected.  The winners are determined by the MOST POUNDS of food collected. 

Winners will have their logo, photos, and name displayed on the wall of our Thrift Shop for the ENTIRE YEAR for everyone to see, and will receive a special award to display at their location.

Help us to help OUR neighbors in need! What are you waiting for?
