Cans Across America collects food Wednesday

With the holidays on the horizon, Campus Dining Services at Pittsburg State University is preparing students for the season of giving.

The university will be participating in the second annual Cans Across America event, a nationwide attempt to stop hunger, on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at PSU. Campus Dining will be collecting canned goods from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gibson Dining Hall and at Gorilla Crossing in the Overman Student Center.

Last year’s Cans Across America drive brought in a total of 221,028 pounds of food in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most non-perishable food collected in a 24-hour period. On a mission to collect even more this year, the university is inviting community members to stop by with donations anytime during the day.
