Join CNU’s 11th Annual Food For Thought Campaign!

CNU's Center for Community Engagement and CNU's Student Assembly are excited to announce CNU's 11th annual Food for Thought campaign! Every year, our entire campus comes together to provide significant relief through a combined campus contribution of non-perishable food and/or monetary donations to the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula. The 2018 campaign will run from October 19 through November 8. 

How to participate:

1) The “Weight of Hunger Challenge”: Sign up your department, center, office, or student/greek organization to see which team can add the most weight to the Foodbank. Teams collect non-perishable food and monetary donations during the campaign culminating with a weigh-in during the Food for Thought finale on Thursday, November 8, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in Trible Plaza. Register your group for the Weight of Hunger Challenge HERE.

This year, the winning team in each of five categories (academic college or center; academic related department, non-academic related department, Greek organization, and student club/organization) will win a $500 donation to the non-profit of their choice.

2) Drop off non-perishable food and/or monetary donations at the Center for Community Engagement (1st floor DSU).

3) Make an online donation HERE.

What makes CNU Engage the best guide to connection with our off campus community?

When it comes to serving in our local community (and beyond), students want to have a meaningful experience and make an impactful contribution, but it can be difficult (even intimidating) to find the right cause or organization in an unfamiliar area. CNU Engage staff and leaders guide students through a simple, effective process that leads to the right fit and helps them develop a personal path that is both fulfilling and deeply impactful.
