2012 theme  December 27th, 2011

The theme for this year’s Governor’s State Employees Food Drive, for which the OSU Food Drive is a part of is….. The Face of Hunger. It may surprise you to know, or maybe you’re fully aware, that the face of today’s hungry looks a lot like your neighbors. With all the changes in the economy, many who would have never imagined ever needing an emergency food box now find themselves in line for this saving resource. Thank goodness for the strong food network across the state, and for the many generous supporters that are part of the OSU family.

The Face of Hunger, something to think about, huh?

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.
