Student Led Food Drive

Cascadia Students are running a Food Drive during November leading up to Thanksgiving. The donations will go to the Ballard Food Bank. The Ballard Food Bank services many neighborhoods including Queen Anne, Magnolia, and Ballard. In addition to being a Food Bank that patrons come to shop for food at (for free), they also deliver weekend snack bags to schools with kids that need extra support.

Donations will be accepted from Nov 4 – 22. Collection bins will be located in each POD and a couple in the commons spaces
