About the Food Drive
In keeping with Dr. King's legacy, this year will mark the 17th anniversary of the community service initiative, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Food Drive. New York State Agencies and several community-based organizations helped to collect over 502,000 pounds of food. 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. In 2019, the food drive was held from December 14, 2018 to March 31, 2019.
We hope that you will join us in making a difference, because as Dr. King said, "No one's plate should be empty."
