As we approach the holiday season, our hearts tend to soften and our giving nature comes out. I wanted to make you aware of an opportunity we have here on campus to help each other out. The Associated Students (AS) Food Bank has organized a food collection drive for the holidays. As some of you may know, the AS Food Bank was started in an effort to help our campus respond to students in need of nutrition services. The AS Food Bank has been operating over the last few years and is currently in the process of undertaking a few new projects and collaborations this year. There are many food collection sites to choose from and they have been set up across campus to help facilitate the donation process for our community. All the departments in the MultiCultural Center have a donation bin for students to drop off their donations, including the Graduate Students Association (GSA) lounge. We encourage you to dig a little deeper than you are used to and think of creative ways to assist this donation drive. If you are thinking of donating food during this drive, please make sure that the food has not already expired.
