Staff Council's Annual Food Drive

01 November through 12 November

Carnegie Mellon's 17th Annual Food Drive, sponsored by Staff Council, will take place Monday, November 1 through Friday, November 12.

CFA Boxes are located outside of MMCH 107,  MMCH 410 and CFA 201.

The drive benefits the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, a non-profit organization that collects, stores and distributes food and household products to nearly 350 charitable agencies in southwestern Pennsylvania.
Drop boxes and barrels for donations will be located throughout campus buildings.

All non-perishable items are appreciated. Items in high demand include:

Peanut butter
Cans of tuna fish
Chicken in a can
Canned soup
Canned vegetables
Food items in a pop-top can
Food items in microwaveable containers
Pasta
Ragu tomato sauce
Cereals
Toilet paper
Bath soap and laundry soap
Shampoo
Deodorant

Special upcoming events in which you can contribute to the Food Drive include "One Day, One Can," at the Health & Benefits Fair, on Wednesday, November 3, and "Cans Across the Cut," Wednesday, November 10, when you can add your donation to the long line of cans traversing the Cut. 

Help those in need by participating in Staff Council’s Annual Food Drive. Last year CMU donated nearly 8,000 pounds of food and $1,702 to the food bank.
