The Campus Food Pantry is partnering with the National Society of Black Engineers and the Food, Nutrition and Dietetics Club in order to provide more holiday food baskets this year. We predict that there will be more folks in need than in years past. Another drive thru drop off event, sponsored by the FND Club, will be held October 20, 2020 at the Food Pantry. From 4pm – 6pm you can bring your items you want to donate and we will pick them up, curbside. Tech Village 910 N. Willow Ave., Cookeville, TN 38501.
Items being collected: mashed potatoes, stuffing mix, gravy mix, corn bread mix, canned sweet potatoes, green beans, corn, and other canned veggies, cranberry sauce, pineapples, cream of mushroom or chicken, cake and brownie mixes, pie filling and pie crusts, salt/pepper packets, and other items you would expect to see on a holiday food table.
Another way you can participate in this program is to sponsor a Turkey or Ham for a family receiving a basket. You can do this at the giving page for the food pantry. You can use the pre-selected $20 if you would like. If you click on the fund, there will be a drop down menu you can choose the Turkey/Ham Program. https://www.tntech.edu/volunteer/outreach.php
