ACE food drive

ACE Campus Food Pantry is an initiative that provides fresh produce, toiletries, and a large selection of shelf-stable foods and snacks for Boilermakers (students, faculty and staff), so that they have the basic items they need to thrive while at Purdue. ACE has been entirely student-led since it opened its doors in August 2015 and now hosts +2,000 client visits a year on average. All items at ACE are free of charge to clients (anyone with a PUID).

This year, in lieu of our usual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, ACE is coordinating a food drive with the following partners: Civic Engagement & Leadership Development, the Division of Diversity and Inclusion, Intercollegiate Athletics, MaPSAC, CCSAC, Purdue Student Government, Purdue Graduate Student Government, Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative Life, and University Residences.

This food drive will take place Monday, January 18 through Friday, January 22. In order to follow Protect Purdue guidelines, anyone hoping to donate may do so by selecting a location from the options below, or donating on behalf of a corresponding organization. The ACE Pantry van (recognizable by purple polka dots around the vehicle) will be parked outside of the following locations during the times listed, and items may be donated by walking or driving up to the van. Each donor will receive a small thank-you gift from ACE for their generosity.
