Dear Members of the CMU Community:
We are on our fifth day of Carnegie Mellon’s 27th Annual Food Drive, and we have almost matched the $28,787.41 that we collected during our 2019 drive.
Now more than ever, our Pittsburgh neighbors in need are counting on us. As we further commit ourselves to the Global Goals through our Sustainability Initiative, fighting hunger is one of many ways that we can make a meaningful impact on our city and region through concrete, tangible actions.

To highlight the impact of our support, we’ve asked Lisa Scales, president and CEO of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, to share a few words with our campus community. Please take a few minutes to watch Lisa’s message, below, and we encourage you to show your own support by making a gift on our Food Drive webpage.

Thank you for all you do to support our larger Pittsburgh community and for making our Food Drive a success each and every year!
