Slam Dunk Hunger

For over 15 years, BYU has helped sponsor the largest food drive in Utah County. This year, BYU has teamed up with UVU and Community Action Services and Food Bank to gather food for those living in poverty in the area.

From Nov. 12-30, drop off non-perishable food in bins across campus and select Provo locations. You can also donate money at the BYU Bookstore, BYU Cougareat, BYU Creameries and local businesses. 

 

Stop by the BYU Broadcasting Building (just east of the Marriott Center) before the basketball game on November 13th to join the fun and donate to the BYU/UVU Food Drive.
