Thursday, October 15, 2020 Food drive to collect 2,500 items for Husker Pantry
More than 30% of Husker students will face food insecurity and hunger at some point in the coming year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need is the highest it’s ever been.
The Husker Pantry provides a one-stop location to assist UNL students with food, toiletries and personal hygiene items, and cleaning products. The pantry relies on donations to keep it’s shelves stocked and the weekly pick-up bags filled so students do not suffer from hunger. 100% of donations benefit UNL students.
As part of its annual fall food drive October 22–30, the pantry is asking the community to help donate 2,500 items. There are two ways to get donated items to the pantry:
- Purchase online via the pantry’s Amazon Marketplace wishlist. Items are shipped and delivered directly to the pantry location in the University Health Center.
- Drop off locally-purchased items at one of 18 collection bins located on City and East Campuses. Find a location here.
