Canned-goods drive for Western's WHOLE food pantry under way

The Western Hub of Living Essentials (WHOLE) food pantry is in need of canned goods such as soups, vegetables, and fruit and is seeking assistance from the campus community for donations.

WHOLE serves as a resource to students who are unable to secure basic needs, and offers perishable and nonperishable food, personal care items (shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.), clothing and other basic needs to students.

There is one donation bin on the 6th floor of the VU and another on the 4th floor where donations can be dropped off.

Interested in supporting WHOLE? Anyone can can donate through WHOLE's Viking Funder page at; employees can give through their paycheck at; or schedule to give time as a volunteer at
