National news reminds us that a family of four enrolled in the federal SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps) will be receiving $36 less per month starting Nov. 1, 2013.  There are currently 23.1 million households in the United States who are enrolled in SNAP, including many in northern Nevada.

To do our part to combat hunger in Nevada, TMCC has opened its annual food drive by placing barrels all over the College, with a goal to collect at least 10 barrels of food and a few hundred dollars in cash donations.  In partnership with the KTVN Share Your Holidays event, barrels will be available for collection through December 11 at TMCC.  All food donated will be distributed at the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.

Donation barrels can be found in these locations around TMCC:

  • Dandini Campus/Red Mountain Building: in the Student Center, 1st floor near the art gallery and near the Café; near RDMT 206; and near RDMT 315
  • Dandini Campus/Child Care Center
  • Dandini Campus/Sierra Building: near the coffee cart; and Library 1st floor
  • Dandini Campus/Vista Building lobby near B206
  • High Tech Center at Redfield
  • Meadowood Center
  • IGT Applied Technology Center

Cash and check donations are being collected by Scott Alquist and can be sent through TMCC’s interoffice mail to EDSN 102 through Wednesday, Dec. 11.  Checks should be made out to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.

This event is sponsored by TMCC and the Student Government Association.   For more information, contact Scott Alquist at 775-857-4958.
