FYI students make 2,000 sandwiches to feed the hungry

Jill TritesKristin CoryStudents in Jill Trites and Kris Cory's section of PsTL 1525W: First Year Inquiry (FYI) class made 2,000 sandwiches to feed the hungry on Oct. 20. In FYI, students focus on the question "How can one person make a difference?" The 2,000 sandwiches were donated to 363, a grass roots organization created by Allan Law, with the mission of feeding 2,000 homeless people in Minneapolis every day.

Law, a retired Minneapolis school teacher, spoke to the class about the level of poverty and homelessness faced in Minneapolis and his lifelong commitment to helping those in need. His message is: Treat people well, don't worry about what you can't control, and there are no excuses for not getting your work done.
