University of Michigan Holds 7th Annual Trick or Can Food Drive

November 8, 2019 | 3:47pm

For the seventh year in a row, students from the Circle K International group at the University of Michigan passed up trick-or-treating for a chance to trick-or-can! On Halloween night, Circle K held a food drive and asked for donations of non-perishable food items to help fight hunger in Ann Arbor and the surrounding communities.

In only a span of three hours, more than 1,180 pounds of food was collected, which is enough to provide nearly 1,000 meals! The donated food was then brought to the Food Gatherers food bank by our friends from University Moving & Storage, a North American Van Lines agent.

Circle K is constantly on the move to help fight hunger. Consisting of volunteers striving to focus on service, fellowship, and leadership, they have been able to band together in order to selflessly fight for those that are food insecure and beyond. In just Michigan alone there are 1 in 7 people stuggling with hunger — including children.

A huge thank you to those at Circle K and University Moving & Storage to help us fight hunger every Halloween.
