KALAMAZOO -- A two-week food drive on the WMU Kalamazoo campus is designed to help stock the pantry of Loaves & Fishes, a Kalamazoo area food bank.

Sponsored by four campus employee groups, the drive will begin Monday, March 27, and conclude Friday, April 7. Donation boxes will be set up in buildings across campus for members of the campus community to fill.

The most needed items for the drive include canned fruits and vegetables, canned meat, peanut butter, boxed dinner main courses, soups and juices. Those making contributions are asked to avoid items in glass containers.

Monetary contributions also are welcome. For more information about the drive or how to contribute, call 616 387-4230.

The food drive is sponsored by the Administrative Professional Association, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the Fraternal Order of Police, and the Professional Support Staff Organization.
