Food Drive is Just Around the Corner!  December 7th, 2011

It is hard to believe, but OSU’s Food Drive is just around the corner!

Please save the date for Wednesday, January 11 at 4:00 pm for the annual food drive kick-off meeting.  We will be meet at the home of OSU’s Emergency Food Pantry – Snell Hall, International Forum Room, southwest corner of Snell Hall/MU East.

We would like to get a start on updating our coordinator list.  Please visit the food drive website to view last year’s list (and view the totals we would like to beat this year!). We will be updating this list for the 2012 drive. Please notify Kate Sanders (541-737-6522) if you have any updates or additions.

It is that time of year again when we start winding down and closing out fall projects, preparing for winter and spring terms and getting ready to spend time with family and friends. Please remember to think about one of the many families our food donations serve. This month alone, the Linn Benton Food Share will feed over 12,300 families through their emergency food box program. Through all their programs, the Food Share serves nearly 1/5 of the population in Linn and Benton counties. You are helping your neighbors by donating.

Thanks you and we look forward to working with you during the 2012 OSU Food Drive.

Our Pledge and the Governor’s Challenge!  February 10th, 2010

University Advancement (Kegan Sims and Carson Dunlap) created this video to help raise awareness for the OSU Food Drive and the Food Fair on February 12.  The video includes University Advancement’s pledge to donate one penny per view. Please share!

As a reminder, individuals who donate $144 or more towards the Food Drive will receive recognition from the Governor. Please help us by keeping track of who makes the donations and be sure to let Kate Sanders know.  We will then inform the state so they can receive proper recognition. (You can include their name on the donation ledgers you turn into the Cashier’s office with your deposit).
