Target Hunger is the annual city wide food drive done the 2nd Saturday every June. Volunteers collect donations from each household in town, requesting community members to donate the most wanted food items for our local food banks.
This year our goal is to raise 50,000 pounds of food! And the more groups we have to help out, the more food we can gather for our local food banks. In Lethbridge, the food is equally split between Lethbridge and Interfaith Food Banks. AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY FOR 2021 THE YELLOW BAGS ARE BACK
The Target Hunger Organizing Committee is hoping to involve as many citizens of Lethbridge in this initiative, and is hoping to connect with local community groups to encourage support for the project. We will be looking for help from community organizations to promote the City Wide Food Drive to their membership, and will also be looking for volunteers to help sort all of the food we collect on the day of the event. Whether your group is able to be actively involved in the food drive or willing to help us to get the word out, we can use your help!
Are you a youth group or service club leader? Or maybe you just want to help stop hunger in our community. Maybe you’re a business owner that’s looking for a way to give back. Whatever your circumstance is, we’re looking for YOU to be a part of the annual Target Hunger food drive that takes place on the second Saturday of June.
This year we are asking residents in all multi-family dwellings, gated communities, and assisted living complexes in Lethbridge to help feed Lethbridge this summer.
