Another successful 12 Days of Giving Food Drive took place on the St. John’s campus recently.
From June 7-22 Memorial University’s Campus Food Bank issued a call for desperately needed items such as rice, cooking oil, canned milk, juice, soup and canned tomatoes.
This year, almost 3,600 food items were collected, as well as $550 from 25 groups across campus.
Each year, there are two friendly competitions: the amount of food collected and the most food per capita.
This year the biggest donors were perennial winners Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Science; followed by CITL, (formerly DELTS); Faculty of Education in third place; Faculty Relations coming in fourth; and Student Residences taking fifth place.
The biggest per capita donors were Faculty Relations; Queen Elizabeth II Library-Library Information Technology Services; Department of Ocean Sciences, Faculty of Science; School of Pharmacy; and the Math Learning Centre.
Well done, Memorial!
