Wittenberg Students Raising Awareness and
Canned Goods to Fight Hunger
Earlier this week, Wittenberg students participated in a banquet held in the Gus Geil Lounge in the lower level of the Benham-Pence Student Center that included a meal of beans, rice and water to help raise their awareness to the issues of poverty.
Students with meal plans had the option to donate a meal for the cause, and a portion of each meal's cost was used to buy canned goods for the Cans Across America effort. Those without meal plans who wanted to participate donated an item of canned food for admission.
Presentations providing Information about hunger and poverty continued throughout the meal.
The second project involved an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest food drive by a non-charitable organization in a 24-hour period. Non-perishable food items were donated by members of the campus community from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7.
