Students get down to food pantry business

October 12, 2011

From “Students get down to food pantry business”— Young-and-eager business consultants visited the River Falls Community Food Pantry last week to listen, learn and begin a semester-long project of service to help the non-profit organization.

Chippewa Valley Technical College instructor Julie Cross says the young people are business students pursuing a two-year degree and who are in a project-management class.

The working group involves several clusters of classmates who will help, but all students share the same main objectives.

One is to help the food pantry develop promotional materials and raise awareness. Another is to hold a food drive at CVTC.

Cross said, “They’re coordinating to get faculty and staff to donate.”

She continued that students will spend time working on the project both in the classroom and at the food pantry.

Last week the first group made its initial visit. Cross said other student groups will also visit the North Main Street location and help with the project.
