Campus Kitchen accepting canned goods at LWC Safe Halloween
The Campus Kitchen at Lindsey Wilson College (CKLWC) will be hosting a canned food drive during Safe Halloween on 6pm-8pmCT, Tuesday, October 25, 2016, in the Doris and Bob Holloway Health and Wellness Center, 299 Williams Street, Columbia, KY. Natalie Vickous and other representatives from CKLWC will be sitting in the Health and Wellness Center lobby collecting all nonperishable food items. You can bring canned goods with you at any time during the event. This is not a requirement for entry into Safe Halloween, but rather an optional donation that would be a great service to CKLWC if you can spare a canned good.

The Campus Kitchen at Lindsey Wilson College (CKLWC) will be hosting a canned goods drive during the college's 23rd Annual Safe Halloween event. The event is scheduled from 6pm-8pmCT, on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 and nonperishable food items will be accepted throughout the entire event. Donations for this event are not mandatory as an entry fee as this is a free event to the community.
In periods at Lindsey Wilson College (LWC) where there is either little food to collect or periods of time where there are very few volunteers to collect food, having a stockpile of nonperishable canned goods enables CKLWC to provide meals to those in need when they may not have been able to receive them otherwise. Natalie Vickous, the CKLWC Coordinator, said that during the winter periods are when there is the greatest time of need for canned goods.
"We are stocking up our inventory for the winter when the Cranmer Dining Center will probably be serving less meals and we can recover less food to serve our regular clients," Vickous said. "We also hope to get enough inventory that we can create food bags to deliver to our clients with large families who are on break from Adair County Schools, who aren't receiving meals during the week, and need to have that extra food to supplement for their children during the week."
Whether it is through volunteering, donations, or by spreading awareness of both hunger in Adair County and CKLWC's work to alleviate it, any help that members of the community can give is always appreciated. If you have the ability to give in order to help those in our community through even a single canned good, those of us at CKLWC will make sure it goes towards a great cause.
Natalie Vickous and other representatives will be set up in the Doris and Bob Holloway Health and Wellness Center, 299 Williams Street, from 6pm-8pmCT. on Tuesday, October 25. If you have any questions regarding the canned good drive or anything about CKLWC, please contact Natalie Vickous or Abby Biddle by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 270-384-7469. We're on Facebook at "The Campus Kitchen at Lindsey Wilson College."
