Boxes sitting outside office doors and in the hallways of Eastern Oregon University were filled to the brim in February for the annual Governor’s State Employees Food Drive.

“A Stronger Community One Meal at a Time” was the campaign slogan, and contributions from EOU staff, faculty and students equated to more than 10 tons toward the fulfillment of that goal locally. While contributions are needed throughout the year, they have the potential to help even more during the persistent and sometimes severe winter conditions in Northeast Oregon.
