This year, Can the Bods (ESU food drive) will be supporting our new on-campus food pantry, Corky’s Cupboard. We are excited to be able to support this initiative because the cans that we raise here on campus could affect students sitting next to you in class. Can the Bods is crucial this year, because we want to start Corky’s Cupboard with a solid amount of items to help students on our campus! Therefore, Associated Student Government needs your help to make this year a success.
This year, we are asking that our Recognized Student Organizations support Can the Bods by participating in the RSO Can the Bods Competition. The winning organization will receive a prize from the Associated Student Government. Items must arrive to the Center for Student Involvement between September 15 and noon on October 31 to be counted, so have them to the SLIM drop-off point by October 30th!
Nonperishable items and cash donations will have the following values:
- $1 = 3 CANS
- Ramen Noodles = ¼ of a can (4 packages = 1 can)
- Jarred items-12 oz or more (peanut butter, mayo, pickles, etc.) = 3 cans
- Boxes of cereal- 12 oz or more = 3 cans
- Macaroni & Cheese = 1 can
If you are in the Emporia cohorts, please consider bringing can goods or cash donations to any of the class weekends between today and October 30th. I will have Kathie provide a box for the donations. If you are not in Emporia, but would like to contribute, please send donations to the following address and mark them as “Can the Bod donation for SCALA”:
