All September: Hunger Action Awareness Month
Originally began by Feeding America, September is Hunger Action Awareness Month! Help spread the word about food scarcity happening in our own back yard. Throughout the month area hair and nail salons will be selling ‘plates of food’, paper plaques to decorate their wall and spread the word about hunger. By purchasing a plate, customers not only promote awareness, but also purchase one meal for the families we serve, at only $2 per meal!
September 9th and September 23rd: Open Volunteer Time
The second and fourth Monday of every month NLCP offers open volunteer time from 3:30PM-6PM. This is a perfect opportunity to get a taste of the Pantry volunteer life without the commitment! Drop-ins are welcome and so are volunteers of all ages.
September 18th: Taste & Tour
NLCP’s annual open house is a time to invite everyone from the public for a free tour of the pantry! Ever wonder the ins and outs of how we operate? Now’s your chance to find out! From 5-7:30 PM enjoy live music, pizza made by Maggie’s Farm Woodfire Pizza on site using the freshest ingredients from our Growing Together Garden, kid friendly activities, and a tour of the Pantry and Garden. All free and open to the public! Thank you to our event sponsor United Iowa Financial.
