SRCUS students to help food-insecure families
Giving back to the community is a way of life for credit unions, and participating in a meaningful service project has become a tradition for graduating third year students in the Southeast CUNA Management School program, This year, students will take a break from the academic rigors of the program to put credit unions’ “people helping people” philosophy into action by serving at the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia (FBNEGA) in Athens, Georgia on Tuesday, June 14, 2016. The FBNEGA mission is to ”work toward ending hunger as part of an overall community effort to alleviate poverty.” There are roughly 2 million individuals who are food-insecure in the state of Georgia and of that group, 82,000 live in the area of service for the food bank. This year, SRCUS students will help feed food-insecure families in the fourteen counties in northeast Georgia and will support the food bank in their effort to end hunger in the communities they serve.
