The HAWKS S.H.A.R.E.S. Program strictly relies on donations to keep in stock non-perishable items to provide to UMES students in need. Below is a list of recommended shelf-stable food items to donate. These items and their non-brand counterparts will allow for a substantive 3-day emergency supply of food to be provided.

Food items include “meals in a can” that are microwaveable or have easy-open pop lids.

Donations may be dropped off during regular business hours adjacent the WESM Radio Station. We are happy to work with any student organization, office, department or community group who would like guidance on hosting a food drive for UMES’s HAWKS S.H.A.R.E.S. program. Please contact us at (410)-651-6144.

Note: For safety reasons, we cannot redistribute homemade products, open food items or any items requiring refrigeration.
