UF/IFAS CALS students, faculty host Stop Hunger Now on Nov. 4 to feed international communities in need

Filed under Opportunities, Service on November 1, 2016.

The University of Florida College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) has continued its partnership with Stop Hunger Now to package meals for families in need. This is the fourth year of the collaboration, and the event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 4 in the Straughn Center on UF’s campus, 2142 Shealy Drive.

Last year, CALS raised enough funds to purchase and package more than 20,000 meals, and this year the goal is 25,000. Students, faculty and alumni are encouraged to register to volunteer and package meals by contacting Charlotte Emerson, CALS director of student development and recruitment, at cemer@ufl.edu. Volunteers are asked to bring three nonperishable items for the UF Field and Fork Food Pantry. Donations to help purchase the meals are welcomed and can be made at http://www.uff.ufl.edu/appeals/stophunger.
