Healthy snack food drive

September 7, 2010 —

We’re partnering with DMARC’s food pantry to collect healthy snack food for kids to have healthy after-school snacks. The food drive starts today and runs through Sept 24. Ask friends and family to pitch in a few dollars and head to the store with the list below.

Here’s a list of suggested items:
fruit (canned in water or 100% juice)
peanut butter
whole wheat crackers or tortillas
tuna or chicken (canned in water)
vegetable soup (low-sodium)
instant oatmeal (no sugar added)
cereal (whole grain)
100% juice (in a can or plastic bottle)
microwave popcorn (lite)
applesauce (unsweetened)
granola bars (low-fat & sugar)
unsalted nuts
rice cakes
sunflower seeds

Bring donations to Lindsay Buechler in the enrollment management office on the 2nd floor of the SEC (see a campus map).

Andrea Cooley gets paid to post on Facebook and Twitter (among other things) to promote Des Moines University to prospective students. She is a Midwest girl at heart, but loves to travel around the country visiting friends and family. If Des Moines had mountains or an ocean she’d never leave. Before joining the DMU marketing team, she was an editor for Country Home magazine. She’s still a little obsessed with magazines, so if you want to talk about decorating, remodeling or gardening projects she’s your go-to girl.
