Description:

Participate in Carnegie Mellon's 16th annual Food Drive by bringing a non-perishable food item to the Cut, where the items will be lined up across the Cut.

The Cans Across the Cut event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, November 11 at the Fence. The goal is to create a line of canned goods from the Fence to Forbes Avenue. Individuals or teams can participate. Teams can register at http://www.cmu.edu/staff-council/committees/food-drive/cans-cut.html and the team that brings the most cans to the fence wins a trophy! For more information, contact Jennifer Cox.

This year's Food Drive, sponsored by Staff Council, runs through Friday, November 13.

The drive benefits the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, a non-profit organization located in Duquesne that collects, stores and distributes food and household products to nearly 350 charitable agencies in southwestern Pennsylvania through soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, day care and senior centers for low-income people and special care facilities.
