Lone Star College-Kingwood and the Humble Assistance Ministries (HAAM) will continue its efforts to provide food to individuals and families in the Lake Houston area.
The entities invite the community to its first spring Community Food Fair on Feb. 14 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in the college’s Parking Lot G. The goal is to help alleviate hunger by providing free food once a month during the fall and spring semesters on a first-come, first-served basis.
“LSC-Kingwood recognizes that students, employees, and community members have food needs that are not met. This event helps with those concerns,” said Brenda Stubbs, LSC-Kingwood professor and Community Food Fair co-coordinator.
The Community Food Fair began in September 2015. Since then, approximately 900 volunteers have helped more than 3,000 households and more than 14,000 individuals in the Lake Houston and surrounding communities. Items normally served include fresh vegetables and fruits, such as onions, potatoes, yellow/summer squash, carrots, cabbage, and dried cranberries, as well as various breads and items.
“Gary Wynne and I receive the Community Food Fair money, which is then given to the HAAM representative for food purchase,” Stubbs said.
LSC-Kingwood faculty, campus groups, and other individuals pay for each month’s event. HAAM orders the food and the Montgomery Food Bank delivers it to the campus. The Community Food Fair will also take place on March 7, April 11, and May 2.
