With this in mind, when the Dog Food Con steering committee proposed a food drive called Dog Food for Human Food, I immediately loved the idea. I have high hopes that our helpful IT community will make this a success.
Food drive participation is simple. All you have to do is bring non-perishable items to the conference. We will have donation drop-off boxes near the registration desk. After the conference, volunteers will donate everything to Groceries-to-Go and Mid-Ohio Foodbank. LifeCare Alliance's Groceries-to-Go serves clients of the Columbus Cancer Clinic and Project OpenHand. Mid-Ohio Food Bank collects and distributes food to over 550 food pantries and local charities.
Both organizations welcome donations of virtually any non-perishable goods. But they also gave me a list of their most wanted items. These include:
- Canned fruits (in juice or light syrup)
- Canned soups & stews
- Canned vegetables
- Pasta & pasta sauce
- Peanut butter
- Tuna & other canned meat
Thank you in advance for participating!
