Staff Council Canned Food Drive

The 2010 Food Drive
Last year, with your help, the Staff Council collected over one thousand six hundred canned goods/non-perishable food items for local families through the Mid-Cumberland Action Agency. The timing of last year’s drive was perfect. The MCAA was down to their last box of food to give away.

The Staff Council is once again sponsoring a Canned Food Drive at the Gallatin Campus
 to benefit
Mid-Cumberland Community Action Agency beginning Wednesday, April 3 and ending Wednesday, April 10 at 4 p.m. 

Boxes can be found in department and division offices on the Gallatin campus starting this Wednesday. The winning office will be provided a pizza party. In order to make the contest more fair to the smaller offices, the total number of items donated by each office will be divided by the number of full-time employees who work in that office. The pizza party will be awarded to the office that has donated the largest number of items per person. 

Acceptable Food Items Include:
Peanut Butter
Dried Beans
Rice or Other Cereals
Food in Jars
Canned Meats
Canned Veggies

The deadline to get your food to the Business & Finance Office (Ramer 180) and
counted is before 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 10. Please contact Beverly Houser at 3561 if you need
assistance in delivering the food to Ramer 180.

  1. Each year that the Staff Council has donated, the food bank was in great need of food, and in some years it was closed or ready to close. This is a quick way to give back to those in need in our community!
