Food pantries in Lawrence are hoping to take part in a Rhode Island-based foundation's plan to give away $1 million.
The Feinstein Foundation divvies up the fund, using a formula based on how much food and money agencies collect between March 1 and April 30.
In Lawrence, ECKAN is acting as a collection point for Just Food, a newly formed coalition of charity pantries operated by ECKAN, The Salvation Army, Pelathe Community Resource Center and Trinity Interfaith.
Donors are encouraged to leave canned goods or money at the ECKAN office in the United Way Building, 2518 Ridge Court, Suite 103.
"Anything donated this month will be increased by the generosity of the Feinstein Foundation," said ECKAN coordinator Jeanette Collier.
