  • Landscape Architecture + Environmental Design
  • Regional and City Planning

How to participate

Students, faculty and staff should drop off their non-perishable food donations in the Gould Hall Dean’s Suite (rm. 180) between February 17 – 21. Find the box with your team name on it, and place your donation inside before 5 p.m. on February 21st.

What is the prize

The winning team will receive a pizza party sponsored by the Haskell and Irene Lemon Division of Construction Science on February 26th.

What happens to your donations

All donations will be delivered to the OU Food Pantry, which provides sustenance to all OU students, staff and faculty in need of nutrition assistance.

The University of Oklahoma Food Pantry’s mission is to contribute to the overall health and wellness of the OU campus community by providing free supplemental food assistance.

We hope you’ll join us in giving back to the OU community!
