Your chance to give and get food this weekend

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – For those needing help with it comes to food we’re here for you with a heads-up on a mobile food pantry in Lansing Saturday.

The pantry will be at the Plymouth Congregational Church on East Grand River Avenue from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. or until the food runs out.

City officials and the Greater Lansing Food Bank will be giving-out free, fresh, non-perishable food items.

If you go you’ll need to bring a valid state identification card or driver’s license and you’re encouraged to bring a box or bag to carry food.

And if you have food to share there’s a way you can help replenish the shelves at the Greater Lansing Food Bank.

The East Lansing Police Department is hosting a food drive and the goal is to fill one of their SWAT buses.

The event is taking place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Patriarche Park.

Some of the things the Food Bank needs the most include canned beans, canned fish, canned fruit juice, canned meats, peanut butter, rice and soup.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
