“Pack the Pantry”
April 11 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Help support the Rutgers Student Food Pantry.
The event is intended to encourage the Rutgers community to donate items to the Rutgers Student Food Pantry, located at 39 Union Street. Please encourage your networks to join together to support the Rutgers Student Food Pantry.
The Rutgers community can get involved in this event in several ways:
1. Collect items at meetings and events now through April 11th. Items may be brought to the Pack the Pantry Event OR dropped off in any Student Center. Donation boxes are located at every Student Center on campus near the Welcome Desks.
2. Encourage community members to bring donated items directly to the Pack the Pantry event on April 11th. Items will be placed on our portable shelves, packed at the event and donated once the event is over.
3. Encourage a student organization you work with to host a table at Pack the Pantry! We are looking for student organizations to host a Crafts for a Cause or a social justice awareness table at the event. Participating organizations will receive funding for supplies.
Student organizations may indicate level of interest by filling out the interest form here.
