After five years, the School of Communication and its Public Relations students turned over the running of the annual campus-wide food drive, Cans to Candelaria, to the Student Dietetic Association and the organization's advisor, Associate Professor Alana Cline.
Associate Professor Lee Anne Peck and her students worked this past spring semester and are working this summer to make the transition a smooth one.
The sixth annual Cans to Candelaria food drive will be 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, during Homecoming Week. Registration for the competition will begin the first week of fall semester. Information about registering will be available at the food drive's website in August.
Last year the food drive competition raised almost 60,000 pounds of food through cash donations and cans. For more information, contact Peck, 351-2635 or Cline, 351-1783.
