Winners of the Campus Food Bank’s 12 Days of Giving food drive were announced mid-July. We collected the most food of any department participating in this drive. This is our seventh consecutive time winning this prize, a result of the great giving spirit here in the department. The prize is a coffee break for participants, and we expect we’ll hold that in the fall when people are back from summer holidays.
