Monmouth University New Student Orientation Food Drive Collects Over 340 lbs of Food!

August 18, 2015

Throughout the month of July, incoming first year students at Monmouth University experienced a two day New Student Orientation to learn about the University, and meet their fellow classmates. At New Student Orientation students toured the campus, experienced a live class, and most importantly: they fought hunger.

Non perishable food items were collected from incoming first year students from July 3rd to July 22nd and were delivered to the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties by Lowy’s Moving Service, a partner of Move For Hunger. In total, Monmouth University’s New Student Orientation collected 343 pounds of food for the hungry!

With nearly 126,000 individuals who struggle to find their next meal in Ocean and Monmouth County, Monmouth University’s food drive will be making a difference by fighting hunger and providing meals to those in need.
