Every donated dollar to the Tarrant Area Food Bank gets translated into four and a half meals for hungry people in 13 counties. Last Tuesday, the House of Student Representatives passed Justin Brown’s program allowing students to use their meal card money to buy food to donate to charity. With this recent buzz around the issue of hunger comes an easy opportunity to make a big difference in the local community and worldwide. That’s right; Hunger Week is here again. Not only are there awesome events all week, you can actually donate money right off your meal card. Use up those extra dollars for a good cause. Of course, cash is great too and donations of cans and food are appreciated.
And if you do have some free time, there are plenty of ways to give time and help out. So here you go TCU – you don’t even have to leave campus to help feed people all over the world. In our global community, we have to understand the importance of caring for people all over the world. Here is our chance to make a difference, and I encourage everyone to stop by and give what they can.
