STUDENTS TEAM UP TO FIGHT HUNGER (STUFH)

STUFH

Students Team Up to Fight Hunger (STUFH) is dedicated to linking food banks with local colleges and universities for two purposes: to collect food for those who need it most and to raise awareness of these needs upon the local student population. The main focus of STUFH comes at the end of a school year, when students move out of apartments and dorms. Rather than discarding unopened non-perishable foodstuffs into trash bins as they leave, STUFH supplies food bins for students to donate these unwanted items. Since the program began in 1999 at Cornell University, more than 1 million pounds of foodstuffs have been raised for food banks to feed the hungry. It is the mission of STUFH to increase this gathering of food at college campuses throughout the country, which will link the hearts and souls of college students with their less fortunate hungry neighbors
