Feds Annual Services BBQ
Nothing says summer like a barbeque in the sun! Grab lunch and support a good cause at the annual Feds Services BBQ on Friday, June 1.
The event is an opportunity for students to learn more about Feds student-run services and the different ways that they can get involved while enjoying some delicious food and supporting a good cause.
"Any profit we end up making goes back to the Feds Student Food Bank to restock the shelves,” said Feds Student Food Bank coordinator Sonia Yung.
Feds Student Food Bank is a non-profit, student-run service that aims to alleviate any issues students are having regarding food security.
“If I were to describe it to someone who doesn’t know anything about the Food Bank, I would say that it is a grocery store with no cash registers,” said Yung.
Students are encouraged to come out to Feds Services BBQ to get to know some of the students who are involved in the services, and to find out all the ways they can get involved, too.
“What a lot of people don’t know is that volunteering at the Food Bank is low commitment, and pretty easy. We just ask that you sign up for a shift and when you are there you can do your homework, and chill with the other volunteers” said Yung. “It's a great way to give back to the community.”
In addition to raising awareness and some funds, the BBQ is also a way for all the services to come together at one event.
"It shows the unity [between services]," Feds Student Food Bank Coordinator Ellie Wang said.
Feds Services BBQ will be taking place at the Egg Fountain on Friday, June 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Regular and veggie burgers will be sold for $2 and hotdogs and drinks will be sold for $1. All proceeds will go directly to the Feds Student Food Bank.
Grab some sunshine, some barbecue, and some info on Feds student-run services all while supporting your fellow students in need.
