Faculty Association raises more than $1,000 for Student Food Pantry at Turkey Trot

Thank you to the GRCC Faculty Association and Katie Vander Meer for organizing a fundraiser for the GRCC Student Food and Snack Pantries. Twenty GRCC faculty, staff and retirees participated in the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving and raised over $1,000 in donations from 26 different donors!

The GRCC Faculty Association has been a wonderful supporter of the Student Food and Snack Pantries. They regularly hold food and item drives during their regular monthly meetings in addition to special events like the Turkey Trot!

GRCC Faculty Association raising money for the student food pantry and food kiosks

Gobble Gobble!

Have you noticed the Food Kiosks that have been popping up about campus? Do you see how fast the food empties? Did you know we have an on-campus Student Food Pantry where students can go once a month and fill a bag? There’s that old joke about starving college kids, but the reality of how severe of an issue this is, is no joke at all. Food insecurity is a real issue and we all can do something about it! 45% of GRCC students scored in the “low food security ” or “very low food security” categories of a recent survey of 428 GRCC students.

With that, you are invited to help our students by making a donation to the GRCC Student Food Pantry and Food Kiosks. The Faculty Association is once again spearheading a team of 5k runners who have pledged to run the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot in downtown GR to help raise money for this cause. All of the funds raised will will go directly to the benefit of GRCC students. If you see these brave folks, give them a high five as they prepare for this 5k in what looks like mild mid-30’s temperatures.

You can donate online.

As of November 20, we have raised $585! Donations will be accepted through December 1!
