February 24 through March 6, The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) will be working together to increase donations made by students, staff, faculty and friends of the campus to Operation Feed. This year all food and monetary donations will support the COTC and Ohio State Newark student food pantry, Campus Corner. Launched in October 2017, Campus Corner saw immediate results with 30 students utilizing the resource within the first month of operation. Since opening, the pantry has been used over 300 times by students of the Newark campus, distributing 4,282 food and personal care items. “This year’s goal is to raise 8,000 food points as we look to directly support those students on campus who are working hard toward their goals while experiencing food insecurity,” said Justin Khol, assistant dean of students/assistant director of student life and Operation Feed chair. “Items of the highest need for our pantry, Campus Corner, include peanut butter, “ready meals” which are heat-and-serve complete meals, and shelf-stable or canned meats.” Donations are given a point value. Cash is awarded the most points followed by food and household items deemed to be critical, priority, very important, important or needed by the campus food pantry. Food donations can be dropped in boxes located in each building on campus. Cash donations should be directed to Fees and Deposits in Hopewell Hall located at 1189 University Drive, Newark, Ohio. Also, the campus and Newark community is invited to see who will triumph in a Students vs. Staff charity basketball game on March 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Adena Hall gym to benefit the Operation Feed campaign. There is a $1 or canned food donation requested for entry to the charity game. There will be a halftime performance by Power House Elite All-Star Cheerleading and Tumbling.
