The Hunger Games
Organized by: Rusk House
Over the summer of 2015, Rusk Eating House of Davidson College sought a change in its philanthropic focus. Known for its impressive food and high GPA on campus, Rusk women wanted to connect those two assets in a way that benefited the local community. Rusk found a great way to connect academics to nutritution through a new program, Moo Meals. Moo Meals reaches students from low income families through three local elementary schools in Mooresville, North Carolina. Through Moo Meals, Rusk provides supplementary nutrition to about 60 families, but would love to increase this number by the next academic year. Rusk is currently working on a large-scale philanthropic event called The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games will enable students, faculty, staff, and community members to participate in traditional field day activities geared towards hunger awareness. Teams of three to five people will compete in these games, and the winners will receive prizes from local vendors. The proceeds from The Hunger Games and this page will be used to fund Moo Meals and donate to No Kid Hungry, an organization combatting hunger on a national scale. Rusk would love your support in our service endeavors, whether it is creating a team for The Hunger Games, donating to Moo Meals, or making a cash donation via this website! Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
