Fall Food Drive


UCAB and the Deans Office are hosting a non-perishable food drive for the Amazing Grace Food Pantry.

Bring your food items to the Usdan Cafe this week November 16 through the 19th during the times of 12 to 1pm and 5 to 7 pm and place them in your class bin (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013).

Each participant in the drive will be given a ticket  for each food item they donate which will be good for a raffle at the pizza party for all participants on Thursday at 9 in Usdan.  The class prize will be announced on November 19.

Help ensure that the Amazing Grace Pantry has enough food this Thanksgiving!

Facebook events here and here.

Date: Nov. 16 – Nov. 19

Food drive now through March 2nd

Wesleyan’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is running a food drive through March 2nd to benefit the Amazing Grace Food Pantry. Chris Becker ’09 writes:

I wanted to let y’all know that Wesleyan’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is currently running a food drive to benefit the Amazing Grace Food Pantry right here in Middletown. This project is part of an on-going NESCAC-wide community service initiative by all the member schools. We are collecting non-perishables (canned food, soup, pasta, etc.) in several locations on campus: Weshop, Sr. Fauver, Daniel Family Commons, Pine St. Laundry, Hi Rise, Summerfields, and the Nics Lounge. We will be taking donations through March 2nd.

Contact Chris (cbecker@wes) or Marissa Trevisan ’09 (mtrevisan@wes) with any questions.

Cans Across Campus food drive this week

Quiet, please! I’m about to mention Bon Appétit.

Last year, I would’ve made some snarky comment or posted a pretty silly image that made fun of Bon Appétit’s ridiculous rules, before telling you what they had to say. But this is for a good cause, and Bon Appétit has—gasp—actually improved a lot since the days of Delmar, so forgive my editorializing. Without further ado…

Bernice Laille of Bon Appétit writes to tell us that the Cans Across Campus food drive is happening through Nov. 20. All proceeds will benefit the St. Vincent DePaul Place and Amazing Grace, two valuable programs in Middletown that help disadvantaged families and individuals get the food they need.

They’re looking for canned soup, canned fruits, pasta, rice, dry beans, peanut butter, canned veggies, 100% fruit juice, spaghetti sauce, stuffing mix, boxed potatoes, gravy mix, pancake mix, and powdered milk. Find drop locations listed in the above image.
