San Diego State University history professor Edward Blum is using his classroom and his wallet to get students involved in the Aztecs Rock Hunger food drive.

Blum has pledged to donate 25 cents for every dollar given to the food drive by his 400 students.  

“I wanted to do something to engage students in the totality of what the university is doing,” Blum said. “It’s not just about our students in individual classes, it’s about a community and doing something wonderful together.”

Blum encourages other faculty at SDSU to think of creative ways to get their students involved.

Aztecs Rock Hunger

Aztecs Rock Hunger food drive is part of a local competition to raise donations to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank.  SDSU has won the county wide competition among the San Diego area colleges and universities each year since it started in 2008. This year, the Aztecs Rock Hunger goal is to donate 100,000 pounds of food to benefit San Diego County residents.
