The money you donate will pay for research to find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer. Please help kids and their families by providing desperately needed hope! Thanks for your support!


Northeastern University Dining Services’ community outreach initiative supports Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation’s mission is to raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily for research into new treatments and cures, and to encourage and empower others, to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer, one cup of lemonade at a time.

Northeastern University Dining Services has embraced this community project by holding charitable events throughout the year with the help of all our management team, associates, client, customers, family and friends.  We named our community outreach team “Foodie Fighters”, this name ties in with so many of our Foodie Friends that Northeastern University Dining Services have on campus.

Northeastern University Dining Services has marketed these events in various ways through their own donation page at: http://tinyurl.com/foodiefighters. We accept cash donations at the lemonade stands and other fund raising events and donate all proceeds to this cause “curing cancer, one cup at a time.” Donations can also be made directly to the organization page and this has been marketed at all our events throughout. Making it straightforward for customers, family, friends, managers, and associates to donate directly to the foundation.

The idea for this lemonade stand was brought forth as our community outreach project during our annual signature student event Educate Your Palate, or "EYP”. Situated on a handcrafted stand made out of re-purposed wood, freshly prepared lemonade was available in rosemary or sriracha basil flavors and served in glass bottles. Northeastern University Dining Services will use this lemonade stand at each fundraising event. On Wednesday, April 27, 2016 we held our first Foodie Fighters Alex's Lemonade Stand during Chartwells’ first Inclusion Week on Community Day and raised $338.53 at our first lemonade stand.

In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month, our team joined Alex's Million Mile: Run. Walk. Ride. 2016 on Saturday, September 24, 2016 in a two mile walkathon to further our efforts to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer research.Our team raised $1,516 via http://tinyurl.com/foodiefighters2016 for the cause. Associates, family, friends, neighbors, staff and students gathered together to travel the Northeastern campus with Team Foodie Fighters on a beautiful autumn morning.

On October 24, 2016, also known as Food Day - a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food - our team served up local apples and apple cider to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation move one step closer to finding a cure for all children with cancer, one cup at a time!

To date Northeastern University Dining Services has raised a total of $3,285!! Thank you to all who donated their time, money and resources and for making these fundraising efforts for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation such a sweet success.
