Spring 2019 Food Drive

Food insecurity is a serious issue plaguing many students and has a dramatic impact on student success. Often, students rely on food banks or pantries at their colleges and universities. These extremely valuable resources are driving by donations which consistently fall short of the growing need. This year, ORAHEAD is hoping to start a new tradition by encouraging attendees to bring two nonperishable food items to donate to the hosting school’s food bank. Please refer to Chemeketa Community College’s Food Pantry website for more information. Thank you!
