ISU SCSC and Early Learning Center to hold food drive on June 26

Posted June 5, 2009

The Idaho State University Students’ Community Service Center along with students from the ISU Early Learning Center will hold a door-to-door food drive on the 100-600 blocks of Seventh Avenue in Pocatello from 9:30 to 11 a.m. June 26.

This is a service learning opportunity for young children about making a difference in their community.  The students range in age from 6 to 11.  All items collected will be donated to the Idaho Food Bank.

Those living in the food drive area can leave food on their doorsteps if they will not be home during the time of the food drive.  For those who want to participate but do not live in the area where students are going from door to door, there will be a booth set up for drop-off donations at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Carter Street.

Items needed include canned food, peanut butter, rice, pasta, dry beans, dry peas, dehydrated or canned evaporated milk, dried meats, cereal, crackers, oatmeal, sugar, flour, oil, tomato sauce, milk, instant foods and toiletries items. Donated items must be new and unopened.
