Thankfull Holiday First Friday!
sponsored by LSS Delaware County Food Pantry
Donation Stations... Coming Soon to a Location Near You
A Note From Our Sponsor: Our holiday traditions and rituals are deeply intertwined with food. But tough choices—between food or medicine, food or utilities, food or transportation, and even food or housing—mean that many of our neighbors must forgo the festive meal that graces the Thanksgiving table.
Ohio currently ranks as the 6th worst state in the nation for food insecurity, and Delaware County is not immune. “About 13% of all residents in Delaware County are at risk of hunger every day,” says Brad Draper, Corporate Director of the LSS Food Pantries. “The LSS Delaware County Food Pantry helped over 2,200 families in the last year. We are grateful for everyone who is helping us make sure these families have a Thankfull holiday.”
Please join us for this special First Friday as we work toward full plates and full stomachs for all of our neighbors, and enjoy an evening with hearts full of gratitude for our warm and generous community.
Live the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday by joining family, friends, and neighbors downtown for November’s First Friday, Thankfull Holiday, sponsored by the LSS Delaware County Food Pantry. Celebrate the joys of the season and put nourishing food on the table for ALL in our community.
There will be lots of fun, free activities for the whole family:
• Bring a shelf-stable food donation to help our hungry neighbors
• Collect favorite holiday recipes from local downtown merchants
• Share what you are thankful for on our LSS Gratitude Wall
• Visit our holiday-themed ‘photo booth’ in the Strand Theatre and get your photo taken
Stop by the Main Street Delaware office at 20 E. Winter St. to pick up the start of your 2016 recipe book. This includes a cover page and binding to keep all the recipes together. From there, venture to the other downtown merchants on the Recipe Tour:
