Fun Events For CVM Food Drive

January 30th, 2014


February is OSU’s big food drive month. Colleges across campus will be competing to see which can bring in the most money and food for Linn Benton Food Share, which coordinates 21 agencies and programs that provide more than 23,000 meals every month to children, the elderly, and families living below the federal poverty level. The College of Veterinary Medicine has a proud legacy of participation in the OSU Food Drive, gathering 40,000+ pounds of food and raising thousands of dollars every year.

Starting next week, you can help! Bring a can of food (or two or three) to work. Bins will be available in Magruder and Dryden Halls for donation of non-perishable food. Suggested donations: Peanut butter, canned veggies, canned fruit, tuna, chili, and canned meals.

The hard-working CVM Food Drive Committee has organized some fun, fundraising events including a silent auction the week of February 17th, a Valentine Raffle , and a 50/50 Raffle.

And don’t forget to bring your appetite! Foodie events begin next Thursday and run all month. All you have to do is show up in the Magruder lobby and eat!
