Canned Food Drive

Posted on May 1, 2018

The school year will end soon, and area food banks face a critical shortage of food as they try to feed families in need with school-age children.

For several years, Fairfax Lions have collected shelf-safe food items and delivered the items to Food for Others (a local food bank). We’ll be doing that again this year.

Please bring non-perishable items to the Lions Club dinner meetings on either May 1 or May 15, 630pm, American Legion Post 177 (upper level), 3939 Oak Street, Fairfax, VA, 22030.  

Check the “Use BY” date on each item to make sure it’s current. As a guide, please see a list (below) of the most needed items. Other food items will also be accepted.

Food for Others most needed items include:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned meat (chicken, beef, turkey, or seafood)
  • Rice (16oz bags)
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Canned fruit (packed in 100% fruit juice)
  • Beans (dried or canned)
  • Canned Stew or Chili
  • Pasta and Pasta Sauce
  • 100% Fruit Juice
