Human Resource Management

Food Drive

The Department of Human Resources hosts a food drive as a LSUS service project each year.  Items will be collected for the NWLA Food Bank through November 8, 2018.  We collected 3,938 pounds of food last year. Our goal is 4000+ pounds of food.  That’s over a TON!  Every 1.2 pounds of food donated provides one meal.  Bins will be delivered to each building on October 1st.  Donated food will taken to the Food Bank on November 9th (weather permitting) and will be weighed. 80% of items collected will be donated to the NWLA Food Bank. The remaning 20% of items collected will be donated to the LSUS Food Pantry (sponsored by Student Activities - scheduled to open in November). The NWLA Food Bank has been instrumental in helping victims from the recent hurricanes. The NWLA is in great need of food to support their programs that help so many people in our community including: Food and Emergency Distribution, Kids Café, Backpack Program, Summer Food Service Program, Senior Program, Mobile Pantry, School Food Pantry and the K.I.D.S. Program. Individuals with questions regarding the LSUS Food Pantry should contact Angel Martin.

The NWLA Food Bank’s Top Food Items requested are:

Canned Meat
Peanut Butter
Dried Beans
Rice
Pasta
Canned Vegetables
Canned Fruit
Cereal or Oatmeal
Flour
Sugar

There are bins in each building on campus.

Last year the faculty and staff did a great job of involving students and the various student organizations. Thank you for helping LSUS Support our Community!
