Cheryl Fowler, LUM Board president shared that,

This is an exciting time for LUM.
After months of gathering data, it is clear that West Lafayette needs a food pantry.

The LUM Westside Food Pantry will complement the LUM Protein Food Pantry, which is located in downtown Lafayette. The Protein Food Pantry will be open on Thursday mornings, and Westside Food Pantry will be open on Friday mornings. Future plans include moving the Protein Food Pantry to a better location and expanding the hours of operation at both sites. 


Please help LUM help your neighbors who need basic food assistance.
