Students from Truman State University held a "Change for Change" food drive on campus on Thursday.
The Drive is part of a health and nutrition class and has been going on all week.
Students are collecting money and non-perishable food items at Walmart and Hy-Vee.
Ally Flick is the planning committee chair and has seen good turnout from her classmates.
"Well we're basically focusing on campus wide students and we thought that it would be easier for students to donate money instead of canned goods, most students live in the dorms or off campus and can't really give up their own food and then the community we thought it would be easier for them to give donations but we're also welcoming non-perishable items for the food drive," Flick Said.
The drive will run on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
