A Hunger Awareness Lunch benefiting the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.

To raise awareness of hunger issues locally and nationally, the Sustainability Committee of Corning Community College with American Dining Creations is sponsoring a simple lunch of beans and rice for members of the College Campus and the Community on Wednesday, March 16, 2016.  Participants may dine with friends, faculty and staff at five different locations: Commons Lobby, Administration Lobby, Nursing Building 3rd floor lounge, Science Lobby, or at the Elmira Center (3rd floor).

Tickets for the Hunger Lunch may be purchased ahead of time for $3.00 and include a raffle ticket for one of several unique sustainable gifts. Please call 607-962-9375 for tickets. The day of the event, a bowl of rice and beans may be purchased for $3.00. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own bowls and forks to reduce the overall waste that day. All profits will be donated to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.

Remember for every $5 donated to the Food Bank, $27 of food can be purchased for our community. Thank you for your support.
