History of the RHA Food Drive
During residence hall move-out in late April of 2003, a Resident Assistant at Blanco Hall set a box outside his door for residents to donate unwanted non-perishable food items that they did not want to move home. After an overwhelming response, it was discovered that the prime time to solicit food donations was at this time of the year, since many campus residents have unopened non-perishable food items that they don't want to take home. The next year, a campus-wide food drive benefiting the Hays County Area Food Bank was coordinated and 640 pounds of food was collected. The year after that, RHA adopted the program.
