LANL News:

This year, Los Alamos National Laboratory is running its annual Holiday Food Drive Nov. 1 through Nov. 20.

Donated food items will be distributed in the second week of December to Northern New Mexico families to ensure they will have a meal for the holidays.

Food items being requested:

  • 1 box instant mashed potatoes 
  • 1 box stuffing 
  • 2 cans evaporated milk 
  • 2 cans vegetables 
  • 2 cans sweet potatoes or cranberries 
  • 1 4-pound bag of sugar 
  • 1 5-pound bag of flour or biscuit mix 
  • 1 quart (32 oz.) vegetable oil 
  • 1 box cake or cookie mix 
  • 1 jar coffee, tea, or fruit drink mix.

Friday, the Lab’s Community Partnerships Office at 1619 Central Ave., will participate in Trick or Treat on MainStreet. In addition to giving out treats, they will kick off the food drive by having a food collection box for accepting donations of the above items.

If you bring an item, you’ll receive a small gift. If you bring three or more items, you will be entered into a drawing to win a Smith’s gift card!

If you can’t make it to our box this Friday, but would still like to contribute to the food drive, the Community Partnerships Office will accept donations of any, or all, of the above items at their 1619 Central Ave. address through Nov. 20.
