Lambda Chi Alpha holds food drive

The Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity is hosting a food drive with the Neighbors Project Thursday and Friday. Students can donate canned food, which goes to the Capital Area Food Bank in Northeast, D.C., in a box outside Provisions.

The fraternity hosts a food drive every semester, but this is the first time the two groups are co-sponsoring the event.

Last year Lambda Chi Alpha collected about 7,000 pounds of food, and organizers said they hope to meet and beat the figure this year.
