Health Students Support Local Food Pantry

The major service-learning project for this fall's HLTH 150 Nutrition class was a food drive to benefit the Salvation Army food pantry in Kirksville.
Students from HLTH 150 organized and secured donations. With help from students in HLTH 290 Principles of Health, they collected donations of food and money Nov. 6 and Nov. 13 at Hy-Vee Food Store. They also manned tables in the Student Union Building and Violette Hall on campus during the week of Nov. 8-12.

The HLTH 150 food drive for the Salvation Army netted 20 large boxes of food donations and nearly $200 in cash.

In addition to the food drive, the HLTH 150 class also helped to unload a semi-trailer of food delivered to the Salvation Army food pantry in October.
