Fogelman Feeds

Fogelman Feeds is an all-volunteer program offered through the Avron B. Fogelman Professional Development Center. The Fogelman College of Business & Economics joined with Laura Edwards, Assistant Director of the Economic Club of Memphis, to coordinate this program, which works to address hunger in the Mid-South region. This past year, Fogelman students packaged nearly 80,000 nutritious meals for local Memphians in need.

The Memphis area has one of the highest hunger rates in the country. A 2013 study conducted by the Mid-South Food Bank and Feeding America found that 22.1% of the population in Shelby County is at risk from hunger, 50,000 of whom are children. Fogelman Feeds seeks to promote action and awareness regarding the plight of those struggling with food insecurity and hunger.

Two Fogelman Feeds events are conducted each year – one per semester. The Fall 2014 event will take place on October 25, 2014 starting at 10:00 A.M.  It will be held at the Fogelman College of Business and Economics Atrium.

Fogelman Feeds is one option for students to meet the requirements for The Complete Professional Program certificate.  For more information, contact the Avron B. Fogelman Professional Center, email Kathy Tuberville or Laura Edwards, or call 901-678-4740.
