City Announces Almost 11,000 meals donated during Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Honor the Dream Virtual and Drive-Thru Food Drives 

The City of Columbia and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Foundation would like to send a heartfelt thank you to our community for the support of the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Honor the Dream Virtual Food Drive and the Drive-Thru Food Drive benefiting Harvest Hope Food Bank. The food drives ended this past Monday, January 18, 2021.

Each food drive was a huge success donating a total of almost 11,000 meals during the pandemic. Monday was also, National Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Organizations across the country hosted service events that focused on COVID-19 relief and address challenges that have been exacerbated by the pandemic, such as poverty, hunger, racial injustice, homelessness, mental health, and educational disparities. 

Councilman McDowell said, "As the challenges of the pandemic continue to have an impact on our community, it is a pivotal time for us to work together to help those who need it most. Let's serve our community and honor Dr. King's legacy of service by supporting this food drive."
