Helping Hands Across America Food Drive

Blugold Dining cordially invites all members of the university community to fight hunger and help those in need in the Chippewa Valley by taking part in our Helping Hands Across America annual food drive on Wednesday, November 10. The Blugold Dining program will sponsor the nonperishable food drive all day in all campus dining locations.

All of the food items collected will help senior citizens, single parents, the working poor, the homeless, the mentally ill and others in need throughout the Chippewa Valley.

Last year more than 2,800 pounds of food was collected and donated to the Feed My People Food Bank in Eau Claire. We hope to collect more than 5,000 pounds of food during this year's event and we need your help!

Faculty, staff, student organizations and residence halls are encouraged to collect food as a class project, department or group. As a special incentive, the groups donating the most food per person will receive a fantastic reward from Blugold Dining.

Donations from the community are also encouraged. Those wishing to contribute may drop off their donations at Marketplace on the lower level of Davies Center from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., on November 10.

For questions or to register your group, please stop by the Blugold Dining office (Davies 227) or email Paula Stytz at
