Tarpon Campus food drive a success

SPC Programs & Events

By Prof Kelli Stickrath

The Tarpon Springs campus collected food for the community over the past 4 weeks. Over the summer, school children do not receive a free breakfast and lunch. Many families in Pinellas County face food shortages. Each year 3,000 families visit FEAST food pantry in Palm Harbor for groceries and supportive services. The staff and students on the Tarpon Springs campus, facilitated by Biology Assistant Professor Kelli Stickrath, decided to take action. Cans of food were collected and brought to the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art to be placed in bins provided by Barbara Fumano, Student Life and Leadership Coordinator.

As an art project, students participated in a ‘can-struction’ project led by Ethan Hart, Associate Director of Learning Resources partnering with Patti Buster, Museum Education Coordinator.
A total of over 1,000 food items were donated.
