Help celebrate World Food Day, raise awareness


October 19, 2011

Please join the Social Work in Communities and Organizations class as these students host a World Food Day celebration. This free event will take place on Thursday [Oct. 20], from 2:30- 4 p.m., in the Mitchell Memorial Library auditorium.

This event hopes to raise awareness about hunger at the local, national, and international levels. Dr. David Buys of the University of Alabama-Birmingham, and Bert Montgomery, pastor and adjunct faculty member in the MSU Sociology Department, will be speaking about the issue.

The class also is collecting canned foods for a local food pantry. Donations can be dropped off at the event as well. Two CEs for social workers will also be issued. Please contact Sarah Young at (662) 325-7881 or syoung@socialwork.msstate.edu for more information.
