CMU Community Food Drive 2020

Carnegie Mellon University's 27th Annual Food Drive, sponsored by Staff Council, officially launched and it's already off to a great start! The food drive will be happening from 2020 November 2 – 16, 2020!

This year, there are three easy ways to participate:

  • Text CMUGives and your donation amount to 50155.
  • Participate in our Drive and Drop events
Monday, November 16th (1 pm - 3 pm) – Tepper Garage

Requested items include peanut butter, fruit snacks, granola bars, snack crackers, pudding cups, juice boxes, and CAN OPENERS**, though all non-perishable contributions are welcome!

**We are striving to collect 100 manual can openers to give directly to the CMU Food Pantry. Our partners at the pantry have identified this as a “most needed item.”

If you have any questions regarding this year’s drive, contact committee chair Carole Panno. Thanks for your support, and please give what you can to make this year’s drive a success! Now – more than ever – our neighbors in need are counting on us! Remember… FOOD IS LOVE!
