From Feb. 24 to March 11, Meredith’s chapter of Kappa Omicron Nu, the National Human Sciences Honor Society, is holding a food drive to benefit the Daisy Trade, the campus food pantry. The Daisy Trade is located in Jones Chapel and is run by the Office of the Chaplain.

Mary Turner, Kappa Omicron Nu President, stated, “The Daisy Trade offers hygiene products and school supplies as well, but we will focus our efforts on food donations based on the Chaplain’s description of highest priority need.”

Turner also mentioned that it is important to prioritize students who are struggling during the ongoing pandemic. “We’re collecting food items to stock up the shelves after the holiday rush and prior to spring break, as many students will be on campus that week and may need a little assistance,” Turner explained.

Items needed include rice cups, pasta and sauce, canned meats, mac and cheese cups, condiments, peanut butter and jelly, non-perishable snacks and canned fruits and vegetables. Drop off locations include Belk Dining Hall, the Cate Center, the library, Jones Chapel, Joyner 113, all parlors in the residence halls and in the Oaks. Questions about the donation drive can be directed to Mary Turner at
