This year’s Global Public Health Week Food Drive will benefit the UI Student Food Pantry. Bins will be placed in the CPHB Atrium from September 16-20, 2019 to collect donations.

All donations are accepted, but we are specifically looking for the following culturally-relevant food items to serve international members of the UI community. The mission of the Food Pantry is to provide nutritious food and basic necessities for University of Iowa students, faculty, and staff in need, and to fight food insecurity through education and advocacy.

  • Beans (dried, not canned)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Cassava Flour
  • Corn Flour (Masa Harina)
  • Honey
  • Dried Spices
  • Onions
  • Cooking Oil

  • Canned Meats
  • Toiletries (diapers, toilet paper, feminine sanitary products, soap, etc)
