Big Red Food Drive - Looking for Volunteers!
Do you have leftover BRBs and want to utilize them for a good cause? Donate your extra BRBs to the Big Red Food Drive!
The Big Red Food Drive is Cornell Hunger Relief's (CHR) annual food donation effort. As part of this drive, CHR encourages students to use any BRBs they have left at the end of the year to buy non-perishable food items, which we collect near on-campus convenience stores. Every year, CHR donates all collected food items to the Friendship Donations Network, a local hunger relief program that redistributes the donations to community members in need.
The Big Red Food Drive will take place Sunday, May 7th - Sunday, May 22nd in the RPCC lobby and Noyes Community Center.
HOW TO DONATE: Bring any of the listed items to CHR's collection bins in the RPCC lobby and Noyes Community Center or buy non-perishable items at Bear Necessities or Jansen’s and drop them off at our bins in the lobbies of Noyes and RPCC.
- peanut butter
- granola bars
- cereal (low in sugar)
- kid-friendly healthy snacks
- beans, lentils or brown rice
- raisins and other dried fruit
- whole wheat pasta
- canned fruits
- canned vegetables
**Cans with pop-top lids are preferred when possible because many people do not have access to a can opener.
Personal care items are also very important for our community partners, especially feminine hygiene products. We would be happy to accept any of these items as well.
VOLUNTEER: Sign up here.

Come check out Anabel’s tabeling in Toni Morrison this Saturday, 4/23, for the Balance Festival!
Balancing the academic, social, and health aspects of our lives is difficult. Balance Festival, a major event on North Campus from Friday, April 22 through Sunday, April 24 is here to help! Balance Festival is about exploring your current choices, whether those choices are working for you, and the alternatives available – all in a positive, upbeat way that meets you where you are and recognizes the constraints you face.
Throughout the weekend, we'll have a series of workshops, facilitated discussions, and scheduled activities, including:
Hear faculty stories of setbacks and how they responded.
Learn what advice recent graduates have for your time at Cornell or join a group dinner with alumni.
Create a vision board, take a guided walk to the botanic gardens, or participate in a meditation session.
Gain tips on how to hack your schedule or learn more about imposter syndrome.
You can view the full schedule of events here. Come for one or as many events as you would like.
Visit the website for information about the lineup of events and the student and campus partners that will be tabling. Feel free to attend the events that are interesting to you, or just stop by the Toni Morrison Multipurpose Room to see what Balance Festival is all about!
If your current academic/social/health choices are working for you, that’s great! Come for some fun or to support a friend! If you’re curious about making small changes and what that might look like, Balance Festival can help you learn more about yourself, connect you to resources, and offer practical suggestions to help you choose what you need.
