Share the love in February by participating in USAC food drive

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.

Share the love this February by joining USAC and Second Harvest 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.
