WVU is looking for food donations for its student food bank, known as “The Rack.” The Rack was opened in September 2010 to provide assistance to students who are unable to purchase food. Since it opened, many students have left messages of gratitude and praise for the service. The Rack has several food items that are in high demand. They are: canned or packaged protein (tuna, chicken, ham, salmon, etc.), macaroni and cheese bowls, flavored pasta and rice bowls, peanut butter, crackers, microwavable meals, canned fruit or fruit cups, cereal, jelly, cheese and peanut butter crackers, granola bars, baking mixes, corn meal, flour, dried beans, rice and other long-term items.
