First, thanks for giving last year. With the aid of UNH faculty and staff, the Cornucopia Food Pantry was able to help ease the troubles of those in need by supplying food baskets at the holidays. Now, with Thanksgiving a mere three weeks away, the university community is being looked to again.

Offices and departments around campus have already begun collecting food items. (All donations must be received by Friday, Nov. 18.) Groceries also can be dropped off at the food pantry, located in the Waysmeet Center at15 Mill Road.

The food drive is done in partnership with the Office of Community Service and Learning.  Volunteers are needed to help assemble the food baskets and to make deliveries.
Anyone who needs assistance can request a food basket by filling out a request form and mailing it to Waysmeet Center at 15 Mill Road or e-mailing the information to waysmeet@comcast.net.
