Living at a student apartment is a blast, but everyone has to move out eventually. When you finally graduate, you might find that you’ve accumulated a lot of canned and dried food over the past semesters. If you don’t feel like taking it with you, what can you do with unused food?

How to Get Rid of Unused Food After You Leave Your Student Apartment?

Many University of Wisconsin Madison apartments have a food donation program that allows you to get rid of unused food after you leave. When you’re getting ready to move out, you can ask a staff member for a donation bag. Place your unused food in the bag and leave it at the drop-off location. This food will be donated to the local food pantry.

Some student apartments also have other charity events throughout the year that allow you to give back to your local community. You might be asked to donate food, write letters of support or help people that are going through a hardship. When you’re living in a student apartment, there’s always a way to give back to the people around you.
