10 am - 12 pm
to help feed hungry people in our city. At Lycée Cares, we will be packing food and drinks into snack bags, which will be picked up by City Harvest and distributed to people in need at shelters and community centers around New York City. Last year, we packed over 3,000 bags. Let's see how many we can pack this year!
Lycée Cares Food Drive
Monday, November 18 - Friday, December 6, 2019
Help us collect food to fill the snack bags by donating to the Lycée Cares Food Drive. City Harvest requests specific items for the bags (healthy, non-perishable, single serving foods and drinks). We've assigned items to each grade to help ensure approximately equal quantities.
PS - Raisins (single serving boxes)
MS - Pretzels (single serving bags)
GS - Juice Boxes (100% juice, no sugar added)
CP - Milk Boxes (single serving, 1% plain milk)
CE1 - Granola Bars
CE2 - Applesauce (single serving containers)
CM1 - Cereal (single serving cups)
CM2 - Fruit Cups (single serving, no sugar added)
Secondary - Any of the above!
Any food products brought into the school must not contain nuts.
Three ways to contribute to the Food Drive:
Drop off Donations
Items can be dropped off in the donation bins in the 75th St. and 76th St. lobbies anytime between now and Friday, December 6.
