Spring 2019 Michigan Tech IT and Student Health and Wellness Food Drive

According to a Spring 2018 Michigan Tech Food Insecurities Survey, about 25% of respondents said students don’t get enough food to eat. Michigan Tech IT and Student Health and Wellness are partnering for a food drive (Feb. 18-22).

You can drop off the food items at the TAC (the new IT service space located in the Library). You will receive a ticket for donating items. At the end of the week, we will have a drawing for an awesome prize.

All items will be donated to the HuskyFAN (Food Access Network)—the student food pantry. Please bring non-perishable items such as:

  • Canned fruit (mandarin oranges)
  • Applesauce (small/individual servings)
  • Canned proteins (salmon or chicken)
  • Instant Pasta Bowls
  • Bags of of rice, grains, or pasta
  • Dry cereal
  • Granola, Protein or Energy Bars
  • Instant Oatmeal
  • Microwaveable Mac and Cheese
  • Juice

These are just some ideas. Please take a look at the HuskyFAN website (https://www.mtu.edu/huskyfan/) to learn more about their mission, hours, and pantry items.

We can help. If you have any questions, please contact us at it-help@mtu.edu or call 7-1111.
