Police Co-Host Food Drive Festival with Galveston County Food Bank

Published 07/12/2016


For some local children, summer means less food. Children in Galveston County receiving free or reduced breakfast and lunch at school struggle to have their nutritional needs met during the summer. In order to help provide for these children, the League City Police Department is hosting a kick-off event for the Galveston County Food Bank’s campaign “School’s Out, Hunger’s Not” on Saturday, July 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the League City Public Safety Building located at 555 West Walker Street in League City. This is a free festival including children’s activities, food, a DJ, demonstrations by the LCPD K9 Unit and League City Volunteer Fire Department. In addition, public safety equipment will be on display. Citizens of League City are invited to be a part of the solution to hunger in our community by bringing donations of kid-friendly, non-perishable items. Representatives from the food bank will accept monetary donations for the “School’s Out, Hunger’s Not” campaign at the event. For every $35 donated to the campaign, 105 meals for children in need will be supplemented.
