A box for nonperishable food items is located in the Communication Main office, Room 118, Fine Arts. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to donate.

While every donation is appreciated, the following food items support healthy eating habits:

Canned foods: beans, tuna, ham, soup, fruit, chili, stew, peanut butter Packaged foods: energy bars, pudding cups, fruit rolls, crackers, granola bars.

Donations will be picked up Monday, Nov. 25 and will be given to a local food bank.. Awards will be presented to the department with the most total weight of goods donated and the most creatively decorated collection box. 

The Society's goal is to surpass the record collection of 464 lbs. Every 10 pounds of food feeds a family of four for a day.
