Reduce local hunger – join LAS in supporting the 11th Annual Live United Food Drive

CATEGORIES: Announcements

Hunger is real. Nearly one in four children in Story County continue to be eligible to receive free/reduced lunch. Once summer break starts, the need for food at local food pantries becomes even greater. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is participating with other ISU units in United Way of Story County’s 11th annual Live United Food Drive. To help, drop off your food donations from April 29 to May 9 at boxes located in Catt Hall.

Departments can also contact the co-chairs, listed below, to coordinate their own drop and pick-up site.
