Community Eats, hosted by the Maya Angelou Schools, is a weekly meal and grocery distribution effort that addresses Ward 7 community needs as a response to COVID-19 and local food insecurity. This effort was started by L’Tanya Holley, Director of Operations, and stemmed from the Maya Angelou Schools Monthly Community Pantry— a place where students and families gathered to get essential needs. Stephon Liggon, Director of Community and Family Engagement, now curates the program.
The next Community Eats event is Friday, October 14th, from 4:00pm-6:00pm in front of the YALC entrance. Come one, come all! All are welcome. If you know of someone in need, please encourage them to attend the Grab ‘N’ Go pick-up or collect the bagged items on their behalf. Grocery bags are generally filled with:
- Collard greens
- Grape tomatoes
- Personal hygiene items
- String beans
