Another Successful Helping Hands Across America Event!

Blugold Dining wishes to thank all UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff as well as members of the Eau Claire community for participating in our Helping Hands Across America food drive on November 10th. As a result of everyone’s effort, over 3,800 pounds of food was donated to the Feed My People Food Bank in Eau Claire. The event was a huge success as the total surpassed last year’s event by over 1,000 pounds!

A special thank you goes out to the four faculty groups and five student organizations that participated on campus. The top faculty group for the third consecutive year was the Activities & Programs office and the top student organization was the University Usher Corps.

More than 14,500 individuals each month rely on food received from programs supplied by Feed My People Food Bank. They distribute more than 2,000,000 pounds of food each year to hunger relief agencies in 14 counties in west central Wisconsin.

We look forward to another great Helping Hands Across America event next year!
