The Lewiston Youth Advisory Council’s “Community Connections … LYAC Fighting Food Insecurity” plans to donate and raise funds to purchase foods the nutrition center isn’t always able to provide — namely tomatoes, cassava leaves, plantain, bananas, oranges and eggs.

The council will have a table at the center’s Friday, May 14, outdoor food distribution center at 208 Bates St., with a variety of healthy foods for individuals to pick up. Food offerings will be available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Those wanting to contribute to the food purchasing effort can write a check payable to the Lewiston Youth Advisory Council and mail it to LYAC, in care of City Administrator’s Office, Lewiston City Hall, 27 Pine St., Lewiston, ME 04240.

For more information, contact the youth council via [email protected] or 207-513-3018.
