Paper plate project helps supply meals for Philabundance

In honor of the Constitution's 225th anniversary, Penn State Brandywine is participating in the Philabundance Paper Plate Advocacy Project on Constitution Day, Monday, Sept. 17. Members of the campus community are asked to write a message about hunger on an empty paper plate, have their photo taken holding the plate and then post the photo to the Philabundance Facebook wall. For every plate posted to the wall, Philabundance, the region's largest food bank, will provide one meal to someone in need. The plates will then be sent to Governor Tom Corbett.

The campus project will take place outside the Commons Building and inside the Tomezsko Classroom Building lounge from 11 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. and a volunteer will take the photos to be posted to Facebook.

The goal of the project, which was created by students from the club Penn State M.A.D.E (Making A Difference Everyday), is to collect 225 message plates.

The project is sponsored by the Laboratory for Civic Engagement.
