We will also be collecting food for ALIVE!’s Emergency Food Distribution Program at the event. Please bring non-perishable items (especially canned meat/fish, cereal, peanut butter/jelly, canned spaghetti, complete pancake mix (needs only water), syrup, dried milk, crackers, Jello, coffee, and tea). The need has never been greater as the number of food recipients in Alexandria continues to grow.
