PB&Joy helps feed area’s hungry

The second annual PB&Joy food drive at Washington University in St. Louis yielded 4,686 pounds of food and $4,664 in monetary donations. The cumulative effort is enough to feed 2,338 people for a day, according to Operation Food Search estimates.

The university again partnered with Operation Food Search, the largest distributor of free food in the bi-state region.

The Community Service Office coordinated the effort and more than 60 faculty, staff and students from across the university assisted in the planning process.
