The first annual Sting Hunger Now Meal-Packaging Event will be held on the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology on March 8, 2013 as part of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, though the event is being sponsored by a variety of clubs and organizations on campus in an effort to unite campus through a global-scope volunteering event.
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is the annual week hosted by Georgia Tech’s Mobilizing Opportunities for Volunteer Experience (MOVE) club, which organizes service opportunities for students, faculty, and staff on campus. This year MOVE is partnering with CCF, absorbing CCF’s formerly-known Week of Compassion. Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is an opportunity to recruit the next generation of volunteers while promoting knowledge of the issues of hunger and homelessness in our communities, both on a local and global scale.
The Sting Hunger Now Meal-Packaging Event, in a partnership with Stop Hunger Now International Hunger Relief, is the culminating event of the week, inviting any and all persons on campus to participate in packaging 100,000 meals for children and families in developing countries and crisis situations.
WHEN: FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 2013 10AM – 4PM
