The Marylhurst University Student Food Pantry is intended to provide supplemental food for students and their families who are in need of this type of support. It will be located in the West Wing of Marian Hall. More details on the way…

Marylhurst University Food Drive & Service Activity

Marylhurst University will be holding a campus-wide food drive throughout the rest of December and January. Please bring non-perishable food to drop-off baskets located in BP John, the Book Store, the Marylhurst Library and Flavia Hall. If you would like to contribute a cash donation, (the Oregon Food Bank’s greatest need) please bring your donation to Amanda Baker, Marylhurst Service Program Coordinator, in Marian Hall Room 131. 

To celebrate the food drive together, you are invited to participate in some service repacking food at the Oregon Food Bank Re-pack Center! (See details below.) Please e-mail abaker@marylhurst.edu if you are interested in signing up. Space is limited, so sign up soon!

Thank you, and Happy Holidays!

Tours
We are able to provide tours during your shift for groups that have never visited the Oregon Food Bank. A tour is a wonderful way to connect your actions as a volunteer to the greater purpose of the Oregon Food Bank. There will be tour led by a volunteer every evening and weekend shift. Usually this will be done during the middle of your shift as a break.
