12 Days of Giving

12 Days of Giving 10th Annual Food Drive - June 8 to June 24, 2015

The 12 Days of Giving is a Food Drive sponsored by the Campus Food Bank. We ask that Departments and Offices around Memorial’s campus get involved and compete against each other with the winning department or office receiving munchies for a coffee break. There are prizes for collecting the most points in total and the most points per capita, so regardless of the size of your department, everyone has a chance to win!

The idea for the Food Drive is simple as it plays off the 12 Days of Christmas theme. Each day, there are suggested food items to donate and the amount of the item corresponds to the Day of Giving. Points will be assigned per item donated from this list. Points will also be assigned for items donated not on the list, but please note – list items are worth more points. Brand names are not important.

At the end of the 12 Days of Giving, volunteers from the Campus Food Bank will arrange for the collection of food from participating departments and the results will be tallied. It helps in arranging this to know who is participating, so if possible please advise us at the start of the campaign if your department is collecting.
Requested items for each day are:

June 8 Day 1       1 rice, 500g bags of long grain rice preferred
June 9 Day 2       1 tea, any size; and 1 coffee, 200g instant preferred
