Your food donation helps alleviate the public health crisis of food insecurity
In Indiana, one million people face food insecurity, The federal definition of food insecurity is having limited or uncertain access to adequate food.
Not only will your donations help alleviate food insecurity, you will also help elevate the schools standing in this campus-wide competition. More importantly, each donation to the food drive represents one positive step towards ending hunger for individuals and families in need in South Central Indiana. Proceeds from this food drive will also benefit our own student population who are in need of support through the Crimson Cupboard program on campus. IU School of Public Health-Bloomington Student Government representatives will be in Royer Foyer between 10a-2pm starting on Monday to solicit/organize donations.
