Food Pantries – Fall Engagement Opportunities
The LUM Food Pantries (Downtown Lafayette & West Lafayette, IN) need your support this fall & winter. The pandemic and the cost of food & fuel are impacting local families as well as food banks. Here are a few ways YOU can help LUM continue to meet the growing demand for basic food, paper products and personal hygiene items.
- DONATIONS – Monetary donations are ideal because the money will be used where it is needed the most.
- GIVING GARDENERS – If you wish to donate fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit from your garden, simply drop off your items when the LUM Food Pantries are open (Thursday & Friday mornings). Learn more.
- NEEDED ITEMS – Families need paper products, cleaning supplies, infant products and personal hygiene items. Purchase the needed items and drop off or shop online and have items shipped. Plus, if you use Amazon Smile, LUM will get 0.5% of your eligible purchase. Go to smile.amazon.com, select “Lafayette Urban Ministry,” and order needed items. Learn more.
- HOST A DRIVE – Coordinate a “drive” for the LUM Food Pantries at your church, organization or business — or at your next event, like a birthday party or business meeting/social. Check the LUM Wish List and keep it simple. For example, sponsor a Toilet Paper Drive for all programs, Socks Drive for the Emergency Shelter, or Snacks Drive for the After School Program.
