Annual state employee food drive returns amid increasing need

The annual Governor’s State Employees Food Drive kicks off Wednesday, Feb. 1, signaling volunteer departmental coordinators across campus to share information about the drive and organize creative fundraising opportunities for their colleagues.

Almost all donations will be made online, either through the special online giving page set up for the drive or by completing the online payroll deduction request form. Employees are encouraged to consider the annual governor’s challenge, asking state employees to donate the equivalent of at least $12 per month for a year.

The annual food drive comes at a time when the regional food bank partner, FOOD For Lane County, is seeing an increase in community need for food.
