Mayor Mapp hosts MLK Food Drive and Potluck Saturday

There's always a crowd and plenty to eat at the MLK Potluck.

Plainfield Mayor Adrian Mapp and First Lady Amelia are welcoming the community into their home this Saturday for the 9th Annual MLK Potluck and Food Drive.

Begun by the New Democrats club, the event has been sponsored by the Adrian Mapp Civic Association in recent years. The must-make event provides an opportunity to socialize over a potluck dinner, honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and pitch in to help fellow Plainfielders experiencing rough times.

Donations of non-perishable food items -- canned goods, pasta, beans, rice, etc., or toiletry (especially feminine hygiene products) items and warm socks -- will be gathered for delivery to Shiloh Baptist Church's food bank. Items may be brought along to the potluck or left ahead of time on the mayor's porch at 535 West 8th Street.

Any kind of dish will be welcome for the potluck, which always includes an amazing variety of tasty foods plus a dessert table.

Note that this year's event gets under way at an EARLIER HOUR -- 5:00 PM.

Come along and have a good time!

6:00 PM - Midnight
