VSU To Fill A Truck For Hunger Sept. 16-30

| September 16, 2015

Valdosta State

VALDOSTA — Valdosta State University is taking action to fight hunger in the community by accepting Second Harvest of South Georgia’s 2015 Fill-A-Truck Challenge.

Hunger is a devastating health, educational, and economic problem that has plagued this area for decades. With September being National Hunger Action Month, now is the time for VSU faculty, staff, students, and friends to make a difference in the lives of the 1 in 4 South Georgians who do not know from where their next meal will come, many of them children who are too hungry to learn.

Collection bins are located in the Student Union, the University Center, the Student Recreation Center, the Health Sciences and Business Administration Building, and each of the residence halls.

Second Harvest of South Georgia, the second largest food bank in the state, is in need of all nonperishable food items, particularly dry soup, rice, canned or powdered milk, macaroni and cheese, cereal, peanut butter, beans, canned fruits and vegetables, tuna, canned meats, stew, soup, pasta, and fruit juices.

Donations will be accepted through Wednesday, Sept. 30.

If each person on campus donates just four items, VSU will reach its goal of filling an entire semi-truck.
