Enactus|OU receives grant for Campbell’s “Let’s Can Hunger” project!

Our Enactus team has been selected to receive a $300 grant to complete Campbell’s Let’s Can Hunger project!

What’s their project idea?

It’s food for thought! They want to add variety to plates distributed by the Southeast Ohio Food Bank by providing dehydrated seasonal vegetables. Yum!

But how will they accomplish this?

The idea is to procure surplus vegetables from local farmers, dehydrate & package them and donate the packages to the SE Ohio food bank.

How will this benefit those who come to the food bank?

1. Dehydration is an effective and low cost method for preserving food and vegetables for the future.
2. To ensure our supply of summer vegetables during  the winter.
3. Avoid surplus summer production from getting wasted.

Stay tuned for more updates from Enactus‘ exciting project!
