The Anti-Hunger Games in State College

September 4, 2015 at 10:00 am Leave a comment

We briefly mentioned The Anti-Hunger Games, a student organization that looks to help out those in the community who are hungry, in a sidebar to the feature on Neha Gupta in our July/Aug. ’15 issue which highlighted students and alumns from Schreyer Honors College doing cool philanthropic work. We only covered the tip of the iceberg on one of the great organizations at the university, which stemmed from a freshman honors seminar in 2013 and was formed by undergrad Eleanor Tsai.

Dr. Nichola Gutgold ’99 wrote about the group on her blog, which gave us some more insight into its formation. Here’s a quick look into what The Anti-Hunger Games have done recently:

For example, last year (2014-2015), our members volunteered at the Hearts for the Homeless shelter and baked goods to deliver to the people living in the shelter. We also hosted a Shaping the Future Summit event where representatives of local non-profits (including the regional chapter of Habitat for Humanity, the Youth Service Bureau, and downtown shelters) informed students about how their organizations addressed the needs in the area and how they could learn more about or take part in their efforts. Even as you read this, the AHG is forging partnerships with other clubs on campus with similar objectives to offer service opportunities from working at the food bank, to delivering dining hall leftovers or meals, to helping out with tasks on nearby farms.
