Entry Fee Options: Option 1: Bring 1-2 boxes of dry cereal (specificallly!). The SOU food bank coordinator mentioned back in 2019 that there is rarely cereal at the food bank and the students are excited when there finally is!  So We thought it would be a fun treat before Christmas to stuff their pantry full of cereal goodness! We also hosted a can food drive at our Turkey Trot for the SOU food bank and a portion of the proceeds went to them as well so don’t worry, we made sure they had other food items.

Option 2:  $10 online or day of (cash or check only) which will also be donated to SOU Student Food Pantry.
