On November 6, 1993, Lambda Chi Alpha began an international philanthropy project that has raised more than 23 million pounds of food for the needy across North America. Called the North American Food Drive, this annual event has arguably become the largest single-day philanthropic project sponsored by a collegiate organization. Last year Lambda Chi Alpha began a new partnership with Feeding America and over 8000 members contributed in raising 1.5 million pounds to donate. Since 1993 our chapter has raised more than 70 thousand pounds. Lambda Chi Alpha at Mercer University runs two events to raise canned food for the Middle Georgia Food Bank; Watermelon Bust and Bag Drop.
