The University of Wyoming’s Service, Leadership and Community Engagement (SLCE) office will hold a food drive for the UW Food Share Pantry Saturday, Feb. 6, from 1-5 p.m.
The UW Food Share Pantry was created through the combined efforts of the UW Food Security Task Force, the Associated Students of UW, the Dean of Students Office, the Sustainability Coalition and Laramie Interfaith. The goal of the UW Food Share Pantry is to provide the UW community with access to healthy food.
UW volunteers will be in Simpson Plaza on the UW campus to collect donations. Face coverings are required on the UW campus. Donors in vehicles can enter the driveway at 13th Street and Ivinson Avenue, and continue to the cul-de-sac, where volunteers wearing masks and gloves will be waiting to assist them.
Preferred dry good donation items include starches, such as pasta and rice, cereal and breakfast foods, including oatmeal. Canned goods needed include meat, soup and pasta sauce; snacks requested are granola bars and instant noodles; perishables needed include bread, fruit and frozen meat; and dairy products requested include condensed and powdered milk. Personal hygiene products also will be accepted. Additionally, can openers are requested.
