Campus organizations give back

November 18, 2011 5:19 pm

Club FEED is a San Joaquin Delta College Club that is becoming a recognized non-profit organization with its mission to eliminate world hunger through immediate and long-term solutions.

Members work as part of local and international efforts.

“We host regular homeless feeds at the St. Mary’s Interfaith Dining Hall in Stockton where our volunteers help to prepare, cook, and serve food to hundreds of people every month,” said Jasmine Ali, president of Club FEED.

Club FEED is made up with volunteers who have come together with the hopes of ending world hunger.

While providing both immediate and long-term solutions throughout the world, Club FEED strives to educate and promote self-sustainability.

Club FEED’s current international project is working with the Sana Orphanage in Afghanistan to provide food for the children.

The club also is planning a fundraising dinner, a walk for hunger and a trade fair for next spring.

The club is also collecting cans and non-perishable food items for Thanksgiving meals for those less fortunate, according to the group’s website.

“We look forward to a great beginning, and hopefully, we will have the opportunity to see our dreams of a starvation-free world, blossom into a wonderful reality,” Ali said.

To become a part of Club FEED’s effort to eliminate world hunger by participation in the club’s various events to help raise funds, bring awareness or collect food for different peoples throughout the world, contact (209) 513-7579 or email deltaclubfeed@gmail.com.

FEEDING THE COMMUNITY

Delta Psi is also reaching out to the local community by putting together a turkey dinner for one lucky family.

The family is being decided on during the club’s next meeting on Nov. 22.

According to club vice-president John Thorpe, the club is also meeting with other organizations that offer free Thanksgiving dinners and hold canned food drives.

Delta Psi will be donating what is collected for the homeless in February.

Delta Psi can be reached for more information during the club’s regular meetings at 3 p.m Tuesdays in the Shima Boardroom.
