About the Food Drive
In keeping with Dr. King's legacy, the 2020-2021 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Food Drive will mark the 21st anniversary of the community service initiative. New York State Agencies and several community-based organizations helped to collect over 652,906 pounds of food and raised over $122,091 in donations to date. Donations are collected and distributed in every region of the state; from the major urban areas of New York City, Albany, and Buffalo, to the rural towns of Sherburne, and Ogdensburg. The food drive is co-sponsored by the Food Bank Association of New York State. The 2020 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Statewide Food Drive will be held from December 11, 2020 through February 12, 2021.
We hope that you will join us in making a difference, because as Dr. King said, "No one's plate should be empty."
