'Food for the Flock' SU Food Pantry Drive Scheduled August 7-8

Canned foodSALISBURY, MD---This fall, Salisbury University students combat hunger on campus through a new “Food for the Flock” food pantry.

Through a partnership with the Maryland Food Bank, the initiative seeks to provide nutritious meals for food-insecure students.

Organizers are asking the campus community to help stock the pantry’s shelves during a donation event Tuesday-Wednesday, August 7-8. Non-perishable food may be dropped off at the Scarborough Leadership Center from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. both days. Donors will have an opportunity to add their names added to a partnership display at the center.

Needed items included tomato sauce; jams and jellies; peanut butter; boxed pasta; and canned beans, vegetables, fruit, tuna, chicken and beef.

Food for the Flock is an initiative of the Institute for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement (PACE) Presidential Citizen Scholars program, based on similar projects at other campuses in the region.
