College Possible students “Knock Out Hunger”

On Saturday, October 29 College Possible Minnesota students, staff, AmeriCorps members and volunteers went door-to-door Knocking Out Hunger to celebrate in annual Fall Service Day activities! Students and team members collected non-perishable food items that were donated to The Food Group to help fight hunger in each of their communities.

Fall Service Day activities encourage students to reflect on all that they’re grateful for and give back to the communities that support their dreams of earning a college degree. Last year, College Possible students collected more than 6,500 pounds of food. This year the team set a goal of collecting 7,000 pounds, and the grand total  came in at 7,168 pounds! This amount of food will provide 5,970 meals to families in the Twin Cities area.

The day ended with a Service Rally at St. Paul’s Central High School with dancing, games, pizza, and a presentation and reflection on community service. Check out the #FSD16 hashtag on Twitter and Instagram to see pictures from throughout the day!
