Food Day Event

Protein, Produce & Pennies Food Drive

The City of Fayetteville, in partnership with Feed Fayetteville and Seeds that Feed are working together to eliminate food insecurity in Fayetteville.  There will be donation stations located throughout Fayetteville October 5 through November 1, where you will be able to bring the following donations:

Protein: Protein is one of the most efficient and long lasting energy sources that the human body can utilize; the average person needs 6 – 8 ounces per day.  We are accepting shelf stable proteins, such as canned tuna and chicken, beans, nuts and nut butters.  You may bring these by City Hall, all Fire Stations, the Fayetteville Public Library and the Feed Fayetteville/Seeds that Feed booth at the Farmers’ Market.

Produce: We are accepting produce grown in your garden, purchased from grocery store or from the Farmers’ Market. This fresh produce will be distributed to local food pantries and community meal locations the afternoon it is donated.

Pennies:  Monetary donations may be brought to the Feed Fayetteville/Seeds that Feed booth at the Fayetteville Farmer’s Market on the Downtown Square, Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Saturday mornings from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will be distributed to Fayetteville food pantries. When you donate money, food pantries are able to purchase food at 1/3 retail price, thus providing three times the food to those needing it the most.
