Fighting Hunger with Eastern Illinois Foodbank, plus: a meal tasting!
Date:April 1, 2016 - 12:00pm
The 4th annual Community & Campus Day of Service (CCDOS) will kick off National Volunteer Week once again on April 9, 2016. Over 1,000 volunteers participate in this community-wide event each year, logging thousands of hours of volunteering time on this day alone. The Office of Public Engagement, CUVolunteer, Illini Fighting Hunger, Eastern Illinois Foodbank, and a host of other University and community groups have worked together to make this event possible.
Learn how Eastern Illinois Foodbank uses the meals you package on the Day of Service to help fight hunger in our community. Plus, you’ll have an opportunity to taste the meals you’ll be packaging, using several recipes designed by Illini Fighting Hunger and Nutrition students at the U of I.
There is still time for you to get involved in the Day of Service! Join CCDOS by registering for the Food Packaging Project or letting us know about your own community service project.
