Campus food drive ’til Dec. 1. If you can’t bring food, give cash online

Remember that now through Thursday, Dec. 1, the all-campus food drive will collect nonperishable food items for the NBC15 “Share Your Holidays” campaign. This effort raises meals for Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, a nonprofit serving families and individuals facing hunger in 16 southwestern Wisconsin counties.

If you don’t want to schlepp food, cash works too . Donors may also make monetary contributions through Second Harvest Foodbank’s website. All donations made through this link ( can be credited to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and if desired, to the specific department that helped raise donations.

Several locations across campus will serve as collection points for donations:

– Union South, 1308 W. Dayton St.;

– Office of the Registrar, 333 East Campus Mall, room 10101;

– WSUM 91.7 FM, 333 East Campus Mall, room 4100.

Building on last year’s collaborative initiative, Visitor & Information Programs will be collaborating with the UW General Library System, University Housing, UW-Extension, the Office of the Registrar, the Division of Enrollment Management, the Department of Geoscience and 91.7 FM WSUM Student Radio to gather monetary and food donations.
