Housing and Hunger Program Info Session

The Housing and Hunger Program is starting up again in full speed, bigger and better than ever! Come hear more about the new structure of the program and meet our lovely coordinators at our info session this week. We’ll have the details of how to get involved in Habitat for Humanity, Food Rescue, Bread Salvage, Amazing Grace Food Panty Program, and more, so that you can cook healthy meals with Middletown residents, or break and rebuild roofs of houses in the area, or help reduce food waste at Wesleyan and Middletown, or all of the above.

Red Alert at the Amazing Grace Food Pantry

From Anike Arni ’13:

Wesleyan is hosting an urgent food drive to support the Amazing Grace Food Pantry.   Right now there is a critically low food supply at Amazing Grace, and all items are appreciated.  They are most in need of peanut butter, tuna, hearty soups, cereal, spaghetti sauce, canned beans, and garden produce.  There will be bins in the lobbies of North College, Olin Library, SciLi, and right outside of Weshop!  We will be collecting food until Saturday, September 15th!

Thank you from all of the customers, staff and volunteers at Amazing Grace.

Date: From now until September 15.
Place: Lobbies of North College, Olin, SciLi, and Weshop.
