Students in the School of Pharmacy recent held a three-class competition to collect canned food items for Second Harvest Food Bank. The food drive took place Nov. 8- 19, and the students collected approximately 2,200 food items. The food drive was run as a competition between the first, second and third year classes in the School of Pharmacy with each cohort aiming to collect 300 non-perishable food items. The P3 class raised just over 300 items, the P1 class raised over 600 items, and the P2 class won the contest with just over 1,000 items.
The items collected by the students were donated to Second Harvest Food Bank. The students also incorporated a “Faculty Challenge” in the contest, and the faculty donations were donated to St. Luke’s Community House.
