With the holidays right around the corner the food pantry at Grand Rapids Community College is needed even more.
Starting Nov. 2, the Associate Nursing Club is hosting a food drive for the pantry. Anyone can donate and drop off locations are at the Calkins Science Center in the Biology Department and the Student Center in the Student Life offices. At the end of the food drive, the pantry staff will weigh the amount of food they have received to track their progress.
The GRCC food pantry has also placed a food order containing canned goods to fill the shelves of the pantry. Members of the community will be able to receive this food around Thanksgiving.
Each year in December, the food pantry has an employee holiday breakfast. Each employee is asked to bring in at least one food item. These food items can be boxed or canned foods that can be stored in the pantry.
“I encourage everyone to donate canned goods,” said Kaylee Wolff, coordinator of the food pantry. “Even if you drop off ramen noodles they are accepted at the food pantry. The more the merrier”.
