PLISF Food Drive

November 8, 2011November 18, 2011

With your help, PLISF will be conducting a 2-week canned food drive for the weeks of November 7th-18th.  The food will be donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the East End Cooperative Ministry Food Bank.  Wake Forest University School of Law successfully conducts a similar annual canned food drive and last year collected over 2,500 cans of food. 

The drive involves a competition between the 1L sections. 3 cans of food or 1 item from the “most wanted” food list will earn 1Ls a one-class period immunity pass from being cold called in a participating professor’s classroom during immunity week (November 14-November 18). 

Most wanted items include: macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, large cans of tuna, rice-a-roni, hamburger helper, rice, instant mashed potatoes, and stuffing mix.

The pass will be a brightly colored, folded piece of paper that a student will place upright in front of themselves during class.  Passes must be turned into the professor at the end of the class period. 

The 1L section with the most food will win a happy hour for their section!  (most wanted items will count as 3 for tallying purposes).

For example:  If you would like to be immune from being cold called for all 3 of Dean Crossley’s torts classes during immunity week, you will need to bring 9 cans or 3 most wanted items (3 cans or 1 most wanted item for each torts class).

PLISF will be collecting your food items and distributing immunity passes beside the snack table Monday November 7-Thursday November 10 from 11am-1pm and again Monday November 14-Thursday November 17 from 11am-1pm

*Immunity passes can only be used during immunity week for participating 1L professors.*
