BERKELEY COLLEGE RALLIES FOR GO ORANGE TO END HUNGER CAMPAIGN
IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY

 

Berkeley College Go Orange to End Hunger Westchester County


The Berkeley College community knows how to make a difference through its support of Hunger Action Month and the Food Bank for Westchester.

A group of Berkeley College students and staff joined the Food Bank for Westchester and its partner agencies, government officials, supporters and staff on September 2, 2015, to announce its Go Orange to End Hunger campaign. A major component of the Food Bank’s month-long calendar of activities, the campaign is in its second year. September is Hunger Action Month, designed to raise awareness and promote change toward feeding the hungry.

Pictured above are (L-R) Sherille Shabazz, EdD, Assistant Dean, Student Development and Campus Life, and students Taylor Douglas of the Bronx and Chris Hendricks of Washington, D.C., current Student Government Association President and Veteran of the U.S. Air Force.

The Food Bank, which is one of eight regional food banks in New York State in the Feeding America network, estimates that one in five Westchester County residents – approximately 200,000 people – are hungry or at-risk of being hungry. One-third are children and 22 percent are seniors over the age of 60. You can donate to the cause by texting FB4W to 88500.

Luing School of Business, the School of Professional Studies, the School of Health Studies, the School of Liberal Arts, and the School of Graduate Studies, which will begin offering a Master of Business Administration degree in Management in September 2015.
