Magic City Harvest Feeds Birmingham
September 20, 2016 - September 22, 2016
MCH FEEDS BIRMINGHAM 2016
This year marks the 21st annual Feeds Birmingham event. Magic City Harvest will be delivering a delicious boxed lunch to about 3,000 people throughout our community on September 22nd. More importantly, part of the $10 you pay for lunch will support the important work we do at Magic City Harvest.
The 1.2 million pounds of food that that we recovered in 2015 provided more than 600,000 meals distributed through 30 nonprofit agencies that we support. There are people in the Birmingham area who don’t know if they will have something to eat tonight. Whether by becoming a sponsor, buying a lunch, or volunteering your time, you can become part of the solution. The menu this year will be terrific, and healthy!
- Smoked turkey wrap with spinach, feta cheese and dried cranberries
- Pasta Salad with autumn vegetables
- Sun Chips
- Chocolate Chip Cookie
Here’s one way you can help. Lunches will be delivered by volunteers for orders of 10 or more. Ask your employer or organization to help place an order. Payments can be made at delivery or through a convenient payment on our web site. If you work from home or don’t have 10 people at your company, orders can also be picked up from the Hill Student Center loading dock at the corner of 14th St. and 7th Ave. South between 11AM and 1PM (look for the signs).
We can use volunteers as well. Lunches will be assembled by volunteers and Sodexo Campus Services / UAB Campus Dining staff before the event. Drivers are needed to make well over 100 deliveries throughout the Birmingham area in one very busy day. Please contact Magic City Harvest if you can spare a couple of hours to make this event possible.
Sponsors are an important part of our success as well. The success of Feeds Birmingham is largely due to our sponsors. The following companies have already agreed to sponsor Feeds Birmingham and we know there will be many more over the next few weeks:
- Advantage Payroll
- Medical Properties Trust
- Sodexo Campus Services / UAB Campus Dining
- St. Vincent’s Health Systems
You’ll probably have lunch on September 22nd. Order through Magic City Harvest and help others at the same time.
