While the holiday season may still be different than we're used to, it's also still a fantastic time to support the Campus Food Bank. We have see our highest usage ever over the Fall 2021 semester. From September - November we served 50% more individuals than we did in the same period last year, and we expect our usage to continue to remain significantly higher than in previous years. We rely on the support we receive from all around the University community to continue helping students struggling with food insecurity. The holiday season is our most important time of the year for fundraising, so if you were thinking about supporting the Campus Food Bank this year now is the time!
