The University of Wyoming's Service, Leadership, and Community Engagement (SLCE) office will be hosting a food drive for the UW Food Share Pantry on Saturday, November 14, from 1-6 pm.

The UW Food Share Pantry was created through the combined efforts of the UW Food Security Task Force, the Associated Students of UW, the Dean of Students Office, the Sustainability Coalition, and Laramie Interfaith.

UW volunteers will be in Simpson Plaza on the UW campus to collect donations. Donors in vehicles can enter the driveway at 13th Street and Ivinson Avenue, and continue to the cul-de-sac to meet with volunteers.

Preferred dry good donation items include starches, such as pasta and rice, cereal, and breakfast foods, including oatmeal.

Canned goods needed include meat, especially chicken, and pasta sauce.

Snacks that are needed are granola bars, instant noodles, and canned soups. Personal hygiene products also will be accepted.
