VSU and Second Harvest of South Georgia are sponsoring a canned food drive called "With a Servant's Heart"
Collection boxes are set-up on the second floor of the student union and in the West Hall rotunda.
Volunteers hope students and faculty will take time to drop off any non-perishable food items.
"It's very important that students get involved because students need to remember where they came from.," said Monique Byrd, a graduate assistant and the VP of student affairs at VSU. "That at one point in time, I'm quite sure a family member or even themselves, they didn't have the proper food or nutritions that they needed."
VSU will be collecting donations until January 31.
