NAU hosts sandwich-making event to feed the hungry

Students in the union make PB&Js

PB&J Campus DiningThe Lumberjack community gathered this week at the University Union to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the Flagstaff Family Food Center.

NAU Campus Dining and student groups Louie’s Cupboard and the Food Recovery Network invited members of the university to stop by between classes and meetings to pitch in and spread the love. Following the event, the group delivered nearly 200 sandwiches to the Flagstaff Family Food Center.

The center’s food kitchen serves a free hot and nutritious meal every day from 2 – 5:30 p.m. to those who might otherwise go hungry. They also operate the Kitchen Door Lunch Program, providing sack lunches for people in need of food throughout the day. There is always a need for sandwiches to help satisfy the demand for this program in the Flagstaff community.
