In Tennessee, one in six people are at risk of hunger, and one in four children do not know where their next meal will come from. Share the love this February by joining the Vanderbilt University Staff Advisory Council and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee in the fight against hunger.
USAC is sponsoring the Share the Love Food Drive benefitting Second Harvest Feb. 3–28. There will be 20 donation locations across the Vanderbilt campus to make giving as convenient as possible.
Any non-perishable food items are appreciated. The most-needed items are soups, stews, canned fruits and vegetables, canned chicken and tuna, peanut butter, cereal and pasta. Participation from all staff, faculty and students who are able to donate is encouraged.
Any faculty or staff member who is not currently a member of the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center can bring a donation to the VRWC and receive one free pass to exercise at the facility between Feb. 3-28.
Donation locations include:
USAC would like to recognize the critical partnership of Plant Operations staff, who are facilitating the pick up and storage of donations from each of these locations. Without their assistance, this drive, along with so many other important events on our campus, could not happen.
There are lots of ways to keep up with Vanderbilt. Choose your preferred method:
