Lane United to host food drive benefitting FOOD For Lane County at June 30th match

Lane United FC is excited to partner with local non-profit FOOD For Lane County on a food drive at their upcoming match this Thursday, June 30th, at 7p.

FOOD For Lane County is a food bank dedicated to reducing hunger by engaging the local community to create local access to food. To that end, Lane United is hosting a food drive at the club’s USL League Two match against OVF Alliance on Thursday evening at Civic Park.

All fans who bring at least one item for the food drive will be entered into a halftime raffle to win a variety of prizes from tickets to the team’s final home game of the season to club merchandise! A collection container will be located at the entry gate, where food donors can collect their raffle ticket.

Fans are asked to bring foods with a long shelf life. See below for FOOD For Lane County’s list of recommended items:
