TCU Hunger Week Project Application
TCU has a long tradition of working for hunger relief in our community and around the world. This year we will hold the 31st Annual TCU Hunger Week! Since 1982, Hunger Week has been working to raise awareness about local, domestic & global hunger, raise funds for hunger-related agencies and lead the TCU community in taking action to make a difference! This year our Hunger Week theme is, “love your neighbor”. We will focus on making a difference for hunger relief right here in north Texas. Nearly 500,000 residents, including 181,000 children in the counties served by the Tarrant Area Food Bank are food insecure according to the Map the Meal Gap 2013 study from Feeding America. Our neighbors are hungry. But, we can do something about it! At TCU we are charged to change the world. Let’s start right here at home.
How you can be involved
Hunger Week is a campus-wide effort! If each of us does something, can you imagine the difference we can make. You and your group (department, club,organization, team, group of friends) are encouraged to apply to host a project for Hunger Week this year. Projects should address local hunger and poverty and should focus either on Action, Education and Awareness, or Philanthropy. Below you will find ideas to get you started as you think about what your project might be. Be creative! Applications are due by December 20th. We will get back to you soon about your project so you can begin planning. This year one organization will be named the 2014 Hunger Healing Champions for hosting a project that goes above and beyond to heal hunger in our community. If you have any questions email email@example.com.
Together we can change the world!
Ideas for Projects
* ACTION PROJECTS
Plan a project that helps us to act to end hunger in hands-on ways. This could be a service or justice project. Past service projects have included volunteering with the food bank, mobile markets, community gardens, meals on wheels, homeless shelters, etc. Past justice projects have included writing letters for Bread for the World.
* EDUCATION AND AWARENESS PROJECTS
Plan an event that helps to educate TCU or the greater community about hunger. This might look like hosting lectures, panels, art projects or documentaries that address certain areas of hunger or hunger relief. Past projects that build awareness awareness have included things like the Canstruction project for the food bank, One Homeless Night, and an Oxfam Hunger banquet.
Host an event or a project that raises money or food for local hunger relief agencies. Past projects have included 5K’s, Canstruction, and Frog Buck donations.
