Fourth Annual “Fogelman Feeds” Event October 6th at U of M Will Assist the Mid-South Food Bank

For release: September 28, 2012
For press information, contact Curt Guenther, 901-678-2843

The Fogelman College of Business and Economics at the University of Memphis will again this year pack meals for the Mid-South Food Bank, and volunteer workers are needed.  Volunteers are asked to be at the atrium of the Fogelman College on Saturday, Oct. 6, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Volunteers may help as little as an hour, for the entire event, or as long as they can.  The event will count toward service hours for individuals seeking to accumulate such credits.

Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., entertainment will be provided for the benefit of the volunteers, and prizes will be awarded in a variety of categories, with brunch or dinner at The Peabody awarded during each of the six shifts.

Event organizers’ goal is to package 80,000 meals for the Mid-South Food Bank, because Memphis has one of the highest rates of hunger in the United States.  The food and packaging materials have been provided by area benefactors.

Volunteers may register online at www.123signup.com/event?id=shcyd.

More information is available from Laura Edwards at 901-678-2443 or ledwrds1@memphis.edu.
