'5 for 1 and Food for All' runs Oct. 26-30

Elon Dining and Elon Volunteers! are collaborating to help fight food insecurity in Alamance County. Donate five canned goods at Lakeside Dining Hall and recieve a free meal!  

From Monday, Oct. 26, through Friday, Oct. 30, any student, staff, faculty, or community member who brings 5 canned goods to Lakeside Dining Hall gets a free meal!

The donated goods will go to The Salvation Army and Allied Churches of Alamance County. Food pantries at these two community partners distribute food on a daily basis to local residents. The Allied Churches pantry alone helps feed 2,000 individuals each month. The Salvation Army feeds about 250 families a month through emergency food boxes.

Current needs include:

  • Pasta & Spaghetti Sauce
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Fruit
  • Snacks/Granola Bars
  • Breakfast Items
  • Rice
  • Canned Potatoes
  • Bottled Water/Juice Boxes

In North Carolina, one out of six people struggles with hunger. Help us address this important need in our community by bringing five canned goods and enjoy a meal in Lakeside Dining Hall.

This initiative is an example of an ongoing effort to address food insecurity involving Elon Dining and the Campus Kitchen at Elon University. To learn about more ways to get involved please visit the Campus Kitchen website.​
