Food Day Event

Strike Out Hunger Food Drive

In honor of Food Day, The Long Foundation, Inc. is proudly joining forces again this year with the Alachua County Government, the City of Gainesville, and the Martin Luther King, Jr., Commission of Florida, Inc. to "Strike Out Hunger" in Alachua County.

This week-long food drive will take place November 1st-7th. Last year, the Strike Out Hunger Food Drive was an overwhelming success. Nearly 67,000 pounds of non-perishable food was collected. In addition, $7,400 was raised with which we were able to purchase 562 Turkeys and fill 550 Baskets all the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner. With the help of nearly 70 community organizations and individuals, we distributed food to 1,700 of our neighbors. 

This year with your help, we know we can do even better! Let's Strike Out Hunger in Alachua County!
