Wake Forest students to prepare banquet for campus food service employees

Homerun, a Wake Forest University student volunteer organization, will host an appreciation banquet for more than 100 Aramark Campus Dining Service employees on March 24 at 6 p.m. on the Magnolia Court.

Homerun prepares and delivers approximately 80 meals each week through referrals from the Ronald McDonald House, AIDS Care Service, Prodigals Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center, the Children’s Home and other nonprofit groups. Homerun holds several fund-raisers annually to raise money to buy food and supplies for these deliveries.

“While Homerun serves the greater Winston-Salem community through regular volunteer work, we also wanted to do something to serve our own campus community,” said Kathleen Stelling, a Wake Forest junior and executive director of Homerun.

Homerun has recruited 75 student volunteers from 24 university organizations to prepare the food for the banquet and to dine with the ARAMARK employees.

Teams of student volunteers will pick up food and supplies at the Homerun kitchen in Collins Residence Hall between noon and 2 p.m. on March 24. They will prepare the food in their own residence halls or off-campus residences, and assemble on the Magnolia Court no later than 5:30 p.m. Seating for the banquet will begin at 6 p.m.

The rain location for this event is Benson University Center, Room 401A.
