From a press release…..

TEAM MSU TACKLES HUNGER

What: 2nd Annual Team MSU Tackles Hunger Food Drive for the Greater Lansing Food Bank

When: Saturday November 8, 2008 at the MSU vs Purdue game

Where: 6 collection locations on MSU Campus: Munn Field, Lot 89, Lot 92, and 3 locations around the stadium.

Becky Dantonio, event chair and wife of MSU Coach Mark Dantonio, said “last year we had a big win with over 600 pounds of donated to needy families and our goal is to double that this year. We’re going to ‘bring it’ on the field against Purdue and we’re looking to the MSU community to ‘bring it’ to donation sites.”

The Lansing Jaycees are volunteering at several of the collection sites on Saturday November 8th to do the heavy lifting and thank donors. Food Movers, a program of the Greater Lansing Food Bank, will have vehicles and staff on site to receive donations.

A campus wide food drive will begin on Monday November 3 and go thru Friday November 7th. “In these tough times it is important for us all to band together and make a difference,” said Vennie Gore, assistant vice president for Housing & Food Services.
