Gast-Kresge Library Food Drive Competition

Dates: Tuesday, March 5 through Friday May 24, 2019


  • William C. Gast Business Library (Broad College of Business, Michigan State University, East Lansing)
  • Kresge Business Administration Library (Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor)

For people at the University of Michigan, beating Sparty never gets old.  And for people at Michigan State University, showing up the Wolverines from Ann Arbor can be as good as it gets.  Whether it is on the football field, the basketball court, the baseball diamond, in case competitions, in job searches...it always feels great to one up our brethren schools in Michigan.  This is the true nature of a great rivalry that these two schools share.  This year the business libraries at these two great schools are taking this competitive spirit and putting the rivalry to good use. We will pit the students, staff and faculty at the two business schools against each other to help out those less fortunate in our two communities by collecting food and personal items to donate to area food banks.  

We have drop off boxes in the Gast Business Library near the Circulation Desk to collect non-perishable food items and personal products. See our list of possible donations for more information. Students - Take this opportunity to clean out your cupboards before moving! 

Redemption Time! We had a food drive competition in 2013, and unfortunately MSU lost by 6 boxes. This year we want to win! So please drop off your food or personal item donations to the Gast Business Library!
