The Giving Program

On Thursday, Nov. 9th, twelve students from Roosevelt’s ELL (English Language Learners) program came to visit the food bank and deliver 100 packets of meals (which the students assembled) for our clients. One of the goals of the The GivingProgram is to provide opportunities for students to give to organizations and people whose mission is to reduce hunger. The students toured our facility, learned about our food bank and the the circumstances that bring people to us. We appreciate the interest these students showed in LCFB

as well as their generous contribution of food! A BIG thank you to everyone involved in this program!
