CUEF & Carolina Cupboard host food drive to benefit the Carolina community

Carolina Union Employee Forum (CUEF) and Carolina Cupboard are collaborating for a community food drive from November 30 through December 11. Students are encouraged to participate by bringing items that are listed below to the bin located at the Pit-side entrance of the Union near Alpine.

CUEF is a committee of student representatives that provide opportunities and positive work experience to student employees at the Carolina Union. Carolina Cupboard is an on-campus food pantry for students of the Carolina community. It seeks to alleviate food insecurities as well as educate, empower and engage the surrounding community on issues related to food insecurity, poverty, health and nutrition.
