ASU4Food needs the ASU community's help to take on hunger during their annual Fill the FLASH food drive. Sun Devils are being asked to drop off nonperishable food on Wednesday, March 27, at the FLASH shuttle that will be parked on Orange Mall near Sun Devil Campus Stores. All donations will be provided to the Tempe United Food Bank.

For those who are unable to stop by the FLASH shuttle during the event, drop boxes are available now through March 27 at the Memorial Union POD markets and in the Hassayampa and Palo Verde residence halls.

Additionally, students from ASU4Food will be available during tabling events on Monday, March 25, and Tuesday, March 26, to accept nonperishable donations. For specific times and locations, visit www.asu4food.org.

Monetary contributions are also being accepted. Every dollar donated can feed up to five people. Cash or check donations can be brought to the FLASH or to any of the staffed tabling events.

For a peek at last year’s successful Fill the FLASH event, watch the YouTube video here.

The Fill the FLASH event is possible in part thanks to ASU Parking and Transit Services.
