Trine University - U Can Crush Hunger 11/7/23
Tuesday, November 7, 2023

Thanks to Trine University President John Shannon, Ph.D., and Blake Grosse, Trine University Assistant Director of Student Leadership, for joining WLKI's Andy St. John.

Dr. Shannon is not only going to take one for the team, but for those facing hunger across northeast Indiana.

The esteemed University President agreed to take a pie in the face if the Trine University community raises more than 10,000 pounds of food for The Fremont Youth and Community Outreach Food Pantry and Community Harvest Food Bank during this year’s U Can Crush Hunger Campaign, which runs through Nov. 10.

Held since 2015, the annual U Can Crush Hunger Campaign is a friendly competition between eight area colleges and universities to raise money and collect food for the Community Harvest Food Bank. In addition to Trine, Huntington University, Indiana Tech, Indiana University Fort Wayne, Ivy Tech, Manchester University, Purdue Fort Wayne and the University of Saint Francis are holding their own drives.

Each campus has set up collection areas and each has a direct link to donate to their food drive. Every dollar donated provides four pounds of food.

Trine has collection boxes for canned goods set up in the Steel Dynamics Inc. Center for Engineering and Computing, the Thunder Ice Arena, and the Rick L. and Vicki L. James University Center, as well as at the entrance to the Angola Wal-Mart and at Trine’s College of Graduate and Professional Studies offices at 330 Intertech Parkway.

The annual drive helps Community Harvest provide meals to thousands of northeast Indiana families during the holidays. It also supports food pantries on college campuses for students struggling with food insecurity.

The goal this year is 125,000 pounds of food donated between the eight universities. Last year’s event raised 106,929 pounds of food.

Established in 1983, Community Harvest Food Bank is the regional food bank for northeast Indiana, serving Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells and Whitley counties.

If you can't make it to the bins, but would still like to help our cause, we are accepting online or mailed donations. Please mail checks to ATTN: Blake Grosse, 1 University Avenue, Angola, IN, 46703

$1=4 pounds of food donated!
