For the seventh consecutive year, Cedarville University’s social work program will lead a “Dine Out for Hunger” event in order to raise awareness of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week, November 17-22.
“The goal of the event is to educate people about hunger and homelessness in our community,” said Julie Furj-Kuhn, assistant professor of social work. “It will also serve as a way to support area businesses.”
Participating restaurants will donate up to 50 percent of their proceeds during the campaign to the Cedar Cliff Ministerial Association (CCMA). The charitable organization will use the money to help fund a food pantry, clothing ministry, and also support a parish nurse program. Parish nurses work in a faith community to address its health issues.
