Stop Hunger Food Drive Launch

Campus Dining, UMW athletes, and the Staff Advisory Council (SAC) are joining forces to collect food for the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank as part of Sodexo’s annual Stop Hunger campaign. Last year’s drive brought in 8,278 pounds of food for distribution to area residents and helped our UMW athletes win their conference food drive competition.

SAC is conducting the annual “One Can Hope” campus food drive campaign until December 16, but all the food they collect November 2-10 will count toward this joint Stop Hunger food drive effort.

UMW athletes are collecting donations at the Eagle Village Giant 9-10 a.m. and 5-6 p.m. November 2-5 and 7-9. They are also accepting EagleOne monetary donations at the Top of the UC between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. November 3, 4, 7, & 8. Donation bins can be found in all campus dining facilities, the UMW bookstore, Goolrick, Jepson, Combs, Melchers, Mercer and other campus locations.  For additional information contact Rose Benedict, rbenedic@umw.edu.
