Governor’s food drive events are a sweet way to raise funds

The annual Governor’s State Employees Food Drive began Feb. 1, and volunteer coordinators from every corner of campus have embraced a return to some of the in-person events that marked the food drive prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I wanted to nurture a sense of community after coming out of the pandemic,” said Kim Horn, executive assistant in Office of the Dean in the Lundquist College of Business Office. “I feel it is important to work on bringing people together after having been secluded for such a long time and to raise greater awareness for the UO Food Drive.”

Several departmental coordinators found inspiration in the food drive itself to create their fundraisers, recognizing that food, and particularly desserts, can bring people together.
