Purdue Polytechnic is joining the College of Agriculture and several other major academic units (Purdue Libraries and School of Information Studies; the colleges of Engineering, Health and Human Sciences, Pharmacy, Science and Veterinary Medicine; and the Honors College) in sponsoring a virtual food drive, collecting monetary contributions online for Food Finders Food Bank through April 17, 2020. Every dollar donated translates into roughly three meals, and $25 provides approximately 75 meals.

Food insecurity affects one in eight people in north central Indiana — a number likely to rise due to COVID-19. Food Finders serves 16 counties, including Tippecanoe County. We hope you will consider participating in this year's drive.
