Fogelman Feeds is an all-volunteer Fogelman Promise Initiative offered through the
Avron B. Fogelman Center for Professional Career Development. The Fogelman College
of Business & Economics has joined with Laura Edwards, Assistant Director of the Economic
Club of Memphis, to launch the initiative, which works to address hunger in the Mid-South
Fogelman Feeds V was held on Thursday, April 18 during Fogelman Promise Day. The 89 volunteers were
able to prepare 17,496 meals.
We will be having another Fogelman Feeds day on October 26, 2013.
Fogelman is working with Outreach International, an organization devoted to combating
world hunger, to meeting the needs of families in the Memphis area. Fogelman students
who volunteer for Fogelman Feeds work alongside faculty and staff to package nutritious
meals that are donated to the Mid-South Food Bank. Fogelman Feeds volunteers packaged
70,000 meals in 2011 and over 106,000 in 2012 that were donated to the Mid-South’s
needy via the Food Bank. Students who participate in Fogelman Feeds events are enriched
by spending their personal time helping to provide nutritious meals to people in need.
Two Fogelman Feeds events are conducted annually, one on Fogelman Promise Day in the
spring semester, and one that runs in conjunction with World Food Day in the fall
