feed

The Office of Chaplaincy sponsored a Rise Against Hunger service learning meal packaging event held in the Wildcat Den on the campus of B-CU. Students, faculty and staff members came together to prepare over 10,000 meals.  These meals were shipped in a container totaling 277,992 meals from the Orlando Warehouse Relief Partnership grant to support Salesian school feeding programs that benefit 12,733 students. The Salesian Missions' "Hunger for Education," project was established to improve food security among vulnerable students in Haiti. Hunger for Education is a recipient of the 2016 USAID International Food Relief Partnership grant. The Office of Chaplaincy is proud to continue on the legacy of our founder, Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune in the practical teaching of the university’s motto “Enter to Learn. Depart to Serve.”
