Sunday Knight Food Share with Straight Street Orlando

Every Sunday night, college students feed the homeless in Downtown Orlando! This will be a great opportunity to interact with the homeless and help feed the hungry. We meet at the Lake Claire Recreational Area at 4:45 pm to carpool to the event. Please remember to wear closed toed shoes and comfortable clothes you do not mind getting dirty.

Also, we heavily rely on the support of our volunteers to cook food for this event. Cooking a tray of food is a great way to earn 1-2 extra community service hours! If you are interested in helping us prepare meals please let us know. For more information, contact Alice at vucf_hunger@ucf.edu.

Please do not RSVP for more than two guests. For people interested in bringing a group of volunteers, you must contact vucf_hunger@ucf.edu.
