Food Fight 2019

Monday, February 25, 2019 - Saturday, March 9, 2019

Donations bins are at local businesses. Final collection is at Country Mart West on March 9.

Food Fight is our food donation drive benefitting the Lawton Food Bank and hosted by the Junior League of Lawton. The Junior League of Lawton competes annually against other Oklahoma and Texas Junior Leagues to raise the most food for local food banks.

In 2019, Junior League was able to collect more than 4,700 pounds of food items and more than 8,000 pounds equivalent in monetary donations!

In 2016, JLL collected more than 2,200 pounds of food items for the Lawton Food Bank.  In 2017, JLL collected more than 3,000 pounds.  In 2018, JLL collected more than 3,400 pounds.  In 2019, JLL had a goal to collect more than 3,500 pounds to benefit the Lawton Food Bank.

On March 9, Junior League collected food donations at Country Mart on Cache Road and 67th Street. All non-refrigerated items were welcome. (Refrigerated items had to be donated to the Lawton Food Bank directly.)
