About the Food Drive

In keeping with Dr. King's legacy, the 2020-2021 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Statewide 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 2020-2021 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."
