2013 College of Forestry Food Drive

2013 Final Food Drive Total

CoF is “Top Banana” in OSU Food Drive for 13th Year

The goal in 2013 was to collect $13,000 during the CoF Food Drive and bring home the “Top Banana” trophy for the 13th consecutive year. 

We not only met but exceeded the first part of the goal earlier this month after collecting $13,748.76 (plus 284 lbs of food) during the February Food Drive. 

And, sure enough, at yesterday’s OSU Food Drive celebration event, the CoF was named “Top Banana” for the 13th consecutive year after collecting the equivalent of 55,279.04 pounds of food to benefit Linn Benton Food Share.  The College of Forestry also received the “Pot of Gold” for the most cash contributed to the cause. 

You can see campus-wide totals by unit at See below for a breakdown of event totals within the CoF.

Thanks again to everyone who helped make this event such a huge success!  The awards and recognition belong to you!

2012 Results:

College of Forestry Wins "Top Banana" Award for 12th Consecutive Year; OSU Food Drive Surpasses Goal with 635,845 Pounds of Food

For the 12th consecutive year, the College of Forestry will receive OSU's "Top Banana" Award on Wednesday, after collecting 56,962.05 pounds of food for Linn Benton Food Share.  It was close.  The Foundation, with only 114 employees to our 174 CoF employees, collected 52,375.70 pounds of food.

Next year will be a challenge -- but it's all GREAT news for Linn Benton Food Share!

The OSU Food Drive goal this year was to collect a campus-wide total of 580,000 pounds of food, an amount exceeded by more than 55,000 with a final total of 635,845 pounds of food.

Special thanks go out to the CoF Food Drive Planning Committee and everyone else who either pitched in or donated generously to help make this year's Food Drive another outstanding success.
