Wharton Can Fight Hunger

Wharton Can Fight Hunger

Food drive to benefit Philabundance

March 3-7, 2014

The Community Building Committee of the Wharton School is pleased to support Philabundance through our first staff-wide food drive! Your donation is extremely important – Philabundance and other food banks often find themselves with a shortage in the spring and summer as many organizations donate food around the holidays.

Wharton Can Fight Hunger is a team-based challenge with daily prizes culminating in a grand prize to the group bringing in the most donations! Help us donate 5,000 food items and $2500!

We’re asking Wharton staff and faculty to donate based on daily themes, however all items are helpful and will be counted towards our goal:

  • Macaroni Monday (box macaroni and cheese or canned pasta/ravioli)
  • Tuna Tuesday (canned/shelf stable tuna)
  • PB&J Wednesday (creamy peanut butter and jelly – plastic containers only)
  • Cereal Thursday (breakfast cereal and hot cereal)
  • Fruity Friday (canned fruit cocktail)


Can’t bring in the above? No problem! We’ll accept other food donations such as:

  • Canned beef stew
  • Canned chili
  • Canned green beans
  • Canned corn


We are also accepting monetary donations with a goal of $2500!

To register your team today, email Jaime Davis ( with your team names and email addresses. Please specify your team captain in the email. Minimum team size is five; maximum is ten. If you’d like to participate outside of a team, we welcome your donations and support!


Can Wharton reach these goals? Yes we Can!
