Give A Little BitPosted: November 7, 2011

In the United States alone, 49 million people are affected by hunger. About 16.2 million of those people are children. Working together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who are deprived of food.
Every year Sodexo’s across America work with local food banks to change the lives of families in need. Lasell College’s Sodexo is working with Centre Street Food Pantry, located in Newton, to put meals on the table for those in need.
Thanksgiving is approaching and the dinner table is where memories with loved ones are made. Lasell is asking RA’s, faculty, and staff to create non-perishable Thanksgiving dinners. Lasell will provide a list of required items and a bag to place them in, but anyone is welcome to be creative!
The first two RA’s to complete the designated list and turn in their bag of non-perishables to Dining Services will receive a pizza party or ice cream social for their students.
The food drive has already begun and continues until Friday, November 11th. Make sure to look through the food you have in your room for any items that are on the list or that could be donated.
Know that you made a difference this holiday season by contributing to the food drive.
