EPPS Holiday Food Drive
Pi Alpha Alpha, the Public Affairs Honors Society, is collaborating with the Comet Cupboard for a holiday food drive. Donations of cereal, canned soup, peanut butter and canned vegetables are being collected in GR 2.238, FO 2.710 and MC 1.604 through December 19.
The Comet Cupboard, which is in its first semester of operation, is a UT Dallas on-campus food pantry that is available to all currently enrolled students, free of charge. Students who present their Comet Card can receive food items once per day. Since the grand opening in October, the Cupboard has distributed an average of 850 food items to students each week.
In order to offer this wide variety of healthy options to the more than 200 students who have begun using the service each week, the Cupboard relies on monetary donations and non-perishable food items donated by on-campus supporters and the outside community.
The Cupboard is located at MC1.604 (in the basement of the library building), and is open from 3:30pm to 6:30pm Monday through Friday.
