Food Drive for Brian Coyle Community Center: Because Charity Begins At Home

by Nelima

I would like to thank everyone that participated in the Dec 26th food drive for Brian Coyle Community Center (read previous post here). Your kindness was infectious because there were many at the African Gloabal Roots launch who hadn’t brought anything for the drive and requested that it be extended. Bashe who is the owner of 1st Cup Cafe has agreed to have the cafe as the drop off site for the food drive for an extra month.

According to Becky Burand who is the Basic Needs Coordinator at Brian Coyle, the following items are most needed at the food shelf;

  • Canned Tuna
  • Cereal
  • Rice
  • Canned Vegetables (especially tomatoes)
  • Canned Fruit
  • Spaghetti

All other foodstuff and non-perishable items will be accepted and greatly appreciated too.

1st Cup Cafe is located at 2740 Minnehaha Avenue South, Minneapolis. Alternatively, you can just drop off your donations at the Brian Coyle Community Center located at 420 S. 15th Ave., Minneapolis, MN 55454.
