Friday Food Drive - November 2, 2018, 11am - 2pm

Campus-Wide Food Drive November 2018 

Drop-off of food items at the Campus Food Bank is scheduled from 11am - 2pm on Friday, November 2nd, 2018.  Volunteers will be at the food bank during that time to receive donations. The food bank area is under construction. While that work is underway, we don't advise dropping off bags of food outside our door if we are closed.  Therefore we hope you will be able to bring food during our set drive time.  This is a drop-off only event, pickup is not in place November 2nd.  The food bank is located in Corte Real, in Burton's Pond Apartments, in room CA1000A. We are across the road from the MUN Child Care Centre. Just come in the front door of Corte Real and head down the half flight of stairs, we are then the first door to your right.  We are building 40B, found in the lower right corner, on this campus map.

If your department is collecting non-perishable food items for the Campus Food Bank for this drive, and you want to know what kinds of food items we would like, you can choose anything from the following items. While we accept all donations of non-perishable foods, these items in particular are always needed:
