The English Department will be having a food drive the entire month of August to help benefit the Grab-N-Go bags offered on campus. Items can be dropped off in East Hall 212.

Danielle Haynes, who started the program last fall, said that the program was started to address food insecurity. "Each bag contains three days’ worth of meals for a student facing food insecurity. Food insecurity does not mean one is completely without food, although it could, but that a person has made the conscious decision to go without food to meet their other needs," Haynes said.

Donations to the food drive go directly towards helping BGSU students combat food insecurity. Students who are facing food insecurity can complete a food assistance application in the Office of the Dean of Students website or in person at the office. Additional details about the program can be found at BGSU News.
