Brenau University Hunger Awareness Week

Brenau’s Staff Development Committee would like to invite you to participate in our Hunger Awareness Week, taking place the week of March 5. Events are scheduled throughout the week, including a speaker, food drive competition, Bowl Painting events and a community service day at the Georgia Mountain Food Bank.

The week will kick off with a talk by Kay Blackstock, Director of the Georgia Mountain Food Bank, at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6, in Thurmond McRae, followed by a screening of the documentary “Hunger in America” at 6:30 p.m.

From 2-4 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, and from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 8, opportunities will be available to paint “empty bowls” for the Empty Bowl Luncheon, an annual fundraiser benefiting the food bank. The cost is $8 per bowl, which will feed up to 100 people.

Finally, from 1-3 p.m. Friday, March 9, Brenau will hold a Community Service Event at the Georgia Mountain Food Bank, and all faculty, staff and students are encouraged to participate.

Sign up by Wednesday, March 7, for this volunteer opportunity at List “Brenau University” as the group name. Some transportation will be available.

The Staff Development Committee thanks you for your support of these important events during our Hunger Awareness Week!
