11th Annual Food Drive

Mon, 29 Oct 2018 6:00 AM - Thu, 15 Nov 2018 5:00 PM

Where: Campus and online


Help families and individuals in need this holiday season!

Join your fellow Dukes in the fight against hunger by participating in our 11th annual food drive. This effort supports the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, who serves an average 105,100 people in western and central Virginia each month . Your donation makes a tremendous impact, as our previous drives have generated more than 9,000 lbs. of food and close to $3,600. An amount equivalent to 22,000 meals .

 

This note was sent to us from a community organization that partners with the food bank:

"I just wanted to reach out and tell you how much we appreciate the food that was gathered during the food drive. I found your paper on the side of the carton that we received from Blue Ridge Area Food Bank and I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much we thank you for the help that you are giving to our little pantry and that you are making a difference."

Consider an online donation, as monies donated directly to the food bank can purchase 2x to 4x as much food compared to a grocery or convenience store.

Look for our orange food donation bins!
