Nationally, 1 in 3 college students will experience food insecurity at some time during their college career. Support fellow wildcats experiencing food insecurity by donating to the Food Drive. All donations will be distributed to CWU students needing emergency assistance. Our hope is to have donation bins around campus and in local community organizations from March 29 through April 9. We encourage supporters to review our recommended donation list or provide a monetary donation to support students.
