Media Advisory: Wake Forest Alumni Fight Childhood Hunger

Hundreds of Wake Forest University alumni across the country will work to address issues of hunger and food insecurity in 30 cities from Boston to Los Angeles on Pro Humanitate Day April 9.

In Winston-Salem, Wake Forest alumni, staff and parents will fight childhood hunger in the local community by working at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina. Volunteers will sort donated food items from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Lauren Bush Lauren, social entrepreneur and founder of FEED Projects will visit the Food Bank from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Afterward, the local volunteers will gather on campus for a talk by Lauren. The talk, made possible by the support of the WellsFargo Foundation, will be livestreamed here.

Pro Humanitate Day gets its name from Wake Forest’s motto, which means “for humanity.” Those who would like to support Pro Humanitate Day but are unable to participate on April 9 are encouraged to donate to the local food pantry or show support on social media using the hashtag #GoodWearsBlack.
