Terps Against Hunger is a student run organization at the University of Maryland that organized and conduct food-packing events with student groups and community organizations. We held our first packing event in the fall of 2013. Since then, we have been adopted as the University of Maryland's homecoming and the UMD Greek Week community service project.
We strive to educate others in the issue of hunger around the world, enlist students to join us in being part of the solution, and empower students to make an impact in the areas they are passionate about.
That’s why we were so excited about this event. It is an event with some energy, something we can get our hands on and do across traditions
Rev. Brett Pinder
I like that Maryland had these events, I definitely feel like I’m a part of something. It’s just great to see the whole UMD community coming out just to help
The group is called Terps Against Hunger, but in reality all of us today are all Terps against hunger. It’s about the campus community coming together to not only be in each other’s company, but to serve the better good of the people who live around us
Dr. Marsha Guencler-Stevens
I liked that they put such an effort into making a meal that was the most possible advantage with the least possible cost. It was clear that they actually wanted to do something real
We do rely heavily on the support of the community, which is why food drives are so important. We can't do it alone, so we are so grateful for Terps Against Hunger
