SOCIAL JUSTICE: 26 July

GUUF’s Food Drop-Off • Saturday, August 14th • 9-11 AM • GUUF Parking Lot
We’re collecting non-perishable food and supplies for Upstate Food Not Bombs. Since many of the people they serve are homeless, they can only accept canned items with pull tops. In addition, they need protein bars, bottled water, Gatorade, diapers of all sizes, baby wipes, band aides, chap stick, toilet paper, family-sized toothpaste & toothbrushes, Q-tips, dog & cat food, Ibuprofen & dish soap. It’s also back-to-school time, so they’re also accepting school supply donations such as folders, notebooks, paper, pens & pencils.
Food Not Bombs Needs:
Coconut milk, lentils, rice, black beans and pasta (for the 30 family grocery bags they share each week), plastic grocery bags and brown paper sandwich bags.

GUUF’s Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup • Saturday, August 21 at 7:30 AM
Join us for our next Adopt-A-Highway Litter Pickup on August 21st. We’ll be cleaning up the same stretch of road—Old Buncombe Road from E. Blue Ridge Drive to Duncan Hill Chapel Road. Due to it the heat, we’ll get an earlier start at 7:30 am. Safety vests, litter picker uppers, water and snacks will be provided. To volunteer, RSVP Karen at kpw0716@gmail.com. Kids 13+ are also welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Let’s keep Greenville Cleanville. (Borrowed from a poster I saw at a local bus stop.)

Clemson Survey: Food Waste & Consumer Purchase Decisions
Sara S. Cothran, graduate student of Dr. Julie Northcutt of Clemson University, is conducting research on food waste and consumer purchase decisions. Sara is asking GUUF members to consider taking her survey, which will help her get accurate and thoughtful information from people who are interested in reducing food waste. It should only take 10 minutes to complete.
