Food Drive Report

Homecoming Food Drive Summary

This past week the LDP took on the exciting task of hosting the first annual Homecoming RSO Food Drive. Earlier on in this semester, we saw the prevalent need the SIU Food Pantry had for donations. However, it was not just the call for donations that inspired us to create this Food Drive; it was the potential for SIU organizations to unify in order to support our fellow Salukis. Once we shared the impact this Food Drive could have, other SIU organizations quickly hopped on board. After a lot of hard work, dedication, and collaboration we ended up having over 25 organizations come together and raise $2137.75 worth of monetary and item donations. It was heartwarming to be able to see the SIU Food Pantry filled to the brim with donations from all of the RSO’s. It was truly a privilege to have so many people come together to fulfill this need that we had on campus.

 The LDP’s second motto is “challenge yourself, change the world”. We have recently taken on the challenge of sponsoring a campus wide Food Drive for our very own Saluki Food Pantry. The Saluki Food Pantry has a prominent need for more food to supply our struggling students. Although this project may not change the whole world, it can change individual lives by putting food on the table for them. Therefore, we are reaching out to you guys to help us make this change and feed our fellow Salukis! We are full of gratitude for the support you give us every day and we want to share that same love and support with the rest of campus. Attached is a link to the GoFundMe page set up to directly purchase food for the Saluki Food Pantry. The LDP thanks you for any and all contributions to this cause that we all feel so passionately about!
