Carnegie Mellon University’s 29th Annual Food Drive


We are so pleased and thankful for the generosity of our CMU Community – including our friends and family members – in supporting our annual food drive.

Carnegie Mellon’s 29th Annual Food Drive, sponsored by Staff Council, once again raised over $100,000 in cash and nonperishable contributions in support of both the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and our own CMU Food Pantry.

 We are SO PROUD to be part of such a caring, generous, and dedicated CMU community and are pleased to share this year’s results:

• Total dollars raised online: $101,895.53
• Total lbs.: 1,768 lbs., 7oz (including can openers)

  • Can Openers: 266, exceeding goal of 250 (donated to our CMU Food Pantry)

    Using the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank’s formula to convert dollars to pounds and adding that figure to our cash total, our grand total raised this year is an incredible (drumroll please)


 Again, surpassing $100,000 in our contributions is beyond commendable! Our partners at the Food Bank continue to be impressed and thankful for what we do for the needy in our community. This success would not be possible without widespread support. A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered and contributed!

 And a special shout-out to our teams finishing at the top of the leaderboard:

 First Place: Campus Design & Facility Development

Second Place: School of Computer Science

Third Place: Tepper School of Business

 And for our CMU student-led teams, finishing their category in the following order:

Prepare yourselves for even greater success for our 30th Annual Food Drive, in the Fall of 2023!!!
