Annual Helping Hands Food Drive - Nov. 15

Blugold Dining cordially invites all members of the university community at the UW-Eau Claire to fight hunger and help those in need across the Chippewa Valley by taking part in our Helping Hands Across America food drive on Tuesday, November 15. Blugold Dining will sponsor the non-perishable food drive from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in all campus dining locations.

All of the food items collected on the UW-Eau Claire campus 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 3,800 pounds of food was collected and donated to the Feed My People Food Bank in Eau Claire. Blugold Dining’s goal is to collect more than 5,000 pounds of food during this year's event and they need your help!

Faculty and staff members are encouraged to collect food as a department or class project. As a special incentive for group participation, the top department or organization donating the most food per person will receive $150 worth of Catering from Blugold Dining.

Donations from the community are also encouraged. Those wishing to contribute may drop off their donations in Marketplace on the lower level of Davies Center from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. on November 15.

For questions, or to register your group, please pick up a registration packet at the Blugold Dining office (Davies 227) or contact Paula Stytz at or 836.3503.
