FHSU ag students present hunger talk
Fort Hays State University agriculture students will present information on "Recognizing Hunger and Meeting the Need" during Times Talk at noon Tuesday at Forsyth Library. The public is welcome to attend and free pizza/salad will be provided to the first 20 people.
The students also helped with the SWIPE Out Hunger packaging event at Forsyth Library on Saturday. The event packaged 100,000 meals of rice, soy, freeze-dried beans and a vitamin blend that feeds six people. The meals will be sent to the Horn of Africa.
Funding for student involvement for both projects was provided from by the Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture ($300) and Kansas Campus Compact Engaged Faculty Fellows program ($2,700).
