Plates for a Purpose

October 15 - November 15

Drop off non-perishable food items at one of our donation stations on campus or donate below and we will do the shopping for you.


Plates for a Purpose LogoEach year, University of the Cumberlands and Union College partner with Kentucky Harvest Southeast in a friendly competition called The Pursuit of the Golden Can. We all collect as many food donations as possible to distribute to local foodbanks so that their pantries can be stocked for the holiday season.

To stay focused on providing whole, quality meals for families in need, we are using the title, "Plates for a Purpose" for this year's food drive on our campus.

Plates for a Purpose lasts from October 15 – November 15. Food donations are being collected on our campus, but monetary donations are more than welcome! Cumberlands will use all gifts to buy food in bulk from local stores and deliver it foodbanks in our area.

Every gift makes a difference for a family in need. Provide a plate today!
