Sunday Knight Food Share with Straight Street Orlando

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 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 more 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.

Take a mid-week break and enjoy the sun! Join us at the Lake Claire Trail and make an impact on our scenic campus environment and wildlife.

This is your chance to make a difference for our beautiful land, meet new faces, and get in touch with nature! Keep in mind that we will be working outside, so old & comfortable clothing, closed-toe shoes, and a water bottle (reusable, if you have one) are advised! We will meet in front of the CFE Arena. See you there! Please contact Vy at vucfenvironment@ucf.edu if you have any questions. *Volunteer UCF supports a variety of community organizations who rely on volunteers to impact their success.
