LEIPSIC - On May 27The Meadows of Leipsic will begin hosting a month long food drive to benefit the local food bank. As part of their program, called STRIKE OUT HUNGER, the Meadows is reaching out to the community to make this event a success.
"Our goal is to collect 4000 pounds of food for the local food bank," states Deb Butler, Assisted Living Manger. "We know as a campus it is viable for us to help the local community in all of our outreach programs. It's a no-brainer. "
This years theme is Strike Out Hunger. There are several events that will be taking place between now and even into July to benefit the program. The Meadows will be participating in the community garage sale to raise cash donations. Each dollar earned equals three pounds of food. On June 2nd, the campus will be offering a pancake and sausage breakfast to take out or dine in. This will run from 830am-1230pm. The cost is non-perishable food items or cash donations. Local business's will be having food drive contest, with the Meadows supplying the winner with a free lunch and breakfast in July. There will also be several business in town that will be collecting non perishable food items as well. Lastly, the Meadows will be wrapping up with a small softball tournament on July 20th, titled "Strike Out Hunger".
