Contact: Innovative Public Relations
WARRENSBURG, MO (April 12, 2016) - Celebrate Earth Day 2016 with Campus Christian House as it hosts the annual “Something to Eat” food drive at the University of Central Missouri Monday, April 18 through Friday, April 22.

Volunteer and join the mission to end world hunger while giving back to our community. "Something to Eat" will be available each day at the tent outside the Elliott Student Union from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or during the lunch hour in the Fitz Diner or Westside Market. For $1.50 you can purchased a package of food that will feed six people in countries around the world. Your contribution will become a personal effort as you package the food yourself, purchasing as many packages as you want.

Invite your family, friends, classmates, business or organization to join you. Members of the surrounding community also are invited to participate.

More than 1,000 lives were saved last year thanks to local donors Sodexo and UCM students, faculty and staff. In the past, meals have been sent to the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Guatemala, the Philippines and even in the United States through Harvesters. UCM Campus Christian House’s annual “Something to Eat” has returned with a goal of 5,000 packages and an increased focus on community involvement. Join local church members, community leaders and classmates to impact the world together.
