How it works: Any student with a meal plan can donate a swipe of their card to go towards donating food to either Christ the King Food Pantry or Heifer International. Students who donate from a 7 or 14 meal plan will contribute to purchasing an animal for a family in need through Heifer International. Students who donate from a 19 meal plan will contribute to the purchase of food for Christ the King Food Pantry (our Waldo neighbors). Later, the cafeteria staff will deduct the meal(s) from your account. This is a great opportunity to give of your excess to alleviate the needs of our Kansas City and global neighbors.
For information, contact Kayla Grieshaber at grieshaber392595@avila.edu.

HUNGER ‘GAMES’ BANQUET

Close

Combine The Hunger Games movie with Oxfam America’s Hunger Banquet and you get a student-led interactive simulation of global hunger. Our world is filled with hunger, we just don’t always have the lens to see it. According to the Gospel of Matthew (‘When I was hungry, you gave me food’ Mt 25), Jesus instructs that we feed those who hunger, no matter who or where they are. Whether you eat a lot, a little, or barely anything at all depends on what district you’re randomly assigned to during this eye opening event. ‘May the odds be ever at your favor!’ (Hunger Games)

FREE EVENT FOR ALL STUDENTS! Registration required.
Refreshments and door prizes so don't miss it.
70% of recruiters and HR professionals have rejected candidates based on data found online. In addition, most new graduates find their jobs by networking, not by responding to job postings, and some of the most effective networking is through social media.
Here’s what we’ll cover in this workshop:
• How to use your social media to support your job search goals.
• Optimizing your profiles to help others find you – while you sleep!
• Enhancing your reputation on Facebook, without killing the fun.
• Using LinkedIn to rise above your competition and get hired fast.
• Skillful Twitter techniques to stay in the front of the line.
• Organizing your time to minimize the job postings mire.
Intrigued? Join us for this fast-paced workshop. Our objective is for you to walk out with several tips you can implement immediately, whether you are heading toward your senior year or out into the wide world.
REGISTER TODAY before it's too late!
