AUGUSTA, GA. – The Department of Counselor Education, Leadership & Research at Georgia Regents University has collected dozens of cans, boxes and bags of food for Golden Harvest Food Bank.

As part of the It’s Spooky to Be Hungry® annual service project, the department is putting together a collection of items deemed critical by Golden Harvest Food Bank, which serves a 30-county area, and will distribute more than 45 million lbs of food over the next three years, through its network of 300 partner agencies.

It’s Spooky to Be Hungry is the single largest grassroots service project in CSRA regional history, and has become the food bank’s largest annual drive, bringing in 135,000 pounds of food and more than $60,000.
