The Food Drive Committee is responsible for planning, organizing, marketing, and implementing the University’s Annual Food Drive.  The Food Drive usually begins in late October or early November, lasts for two weeks and is open to participation by all staff, faculty and students. The committee members begin meeting in early September to plan and strategize for the drive. Tasks that need to be completed to make the drive successful include:  contacting vendors to donate prizes for a raffle, organizing the annual kick-off event at the October Staff Council meeting, planning the One Can/One Day event at the annual Benefits Fair, organizing Cans Across the Cut, advertising the drive and the corresponding events, and planning the logistics of the drive. All proceeds benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
