Sunday Knight Food Share

Every Sunday night, college students lead a feeding with Straight Street Orlando! This will be a great opportunity to interact with the homeless and help feed the hungry. We meet at the Lake Claire Rec 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 more community service hours! If you are interested in helping us prepare meals please let us know and we will send you the recipe.

Please visit www.ucf.edu/knightconnect to RSVP.
