Lansing, MI - Join the Downtown Lansing Community tomorrow, Tuesday, November 26th, in the fight against hunger! Downtown Lansing Inc. (DLI) is hosting a competitive food drive between local teams and individuals to raise food and monetary contributions to help those in need in our community.


The winner of the Food Fight competition will get their name engraved in the Golden Can Traveling Trophy, which they get to keep for one year. Teams and individuals were encouraged to sign up in advance for planning purposes as the contest is weighted by the number of team members, but the public is welcome to participate the day of the event without signing up.


This is a fun competitive food drive, with both food and monetary donations being accepted. In an effort to weigh donations evenly, for the sake of this competition only, every dollar donated will equal 1 lb. of food.

The total number of “pounds” collected per team will then be divided by the total number of team members to determine who has the highest percentage of “pounds” of food donated per team member.


Food and/or monetary donations can be dropped-off at the Greater Lansing Food Bank truck, located in front of the State Capitol on Capitol Ave. from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Tuesday, November 26.

Donations will be collected rain or shine.


For more information or questions, contact Downtown Lansing Inc.’s Communication and Marketing Manager, Cathleen Edgerly, at or call (517) 243-3516.
