Many thanks to the faculty members who supported the “Feed My Starving Children” event – either by announcing it in class, by participating at one of the ten packing sessions, or through a financial gift.

The cost to host the event was $45,000; if  you’d still like to contribute financially, you can do so here.

Highlights include: 

  • Over 200,000 meals were packaged over the two day event for children in the Third World.
  • Students from 53 different campus clubs, organizations, fraternities, sororities, and sports teams participated in the event.
  • For many students, this was their first exposure to any sort of Christian event on campus. Of the 1500 students who volunteered, 0ver 1000 are not connected to a local church or campus ministry.
  • This year, faculty members from Food Science & Nutrition, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Communication Studies, and Philosphy volunteered during one of the packaging shifts.

As you remember, please pray for the relationships built during this event, and that “gospel conversations” will take place in dorm rooms, greek houses, classroom … and faculty offices.
