USciences faculty, staff, and students filled more than 350 reusable shopping bags to the top with the fixings for a flavorful Thanksgiving meal as they donated to the 10th Annual Appeal for a Meal food drive. 

The drive is a partnership between the University’s Office of Student Life, former City Councilwoman Jannie L. Blackwell, and Allegro Pizza. The food is distributed to West Philadelphia families preparing for the holiday meal. 

Student clubs and organizations and various University departments gathered the donations of fruit, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, dinner rolls — and of course the cranberry sauce! Bags were loaded into cars and vans to be brought to Allegro Pizza where distribution takes place.
