Since 2011, public-relations students in a University of Alabama service-learning course taught by Susan Daria have worked to increase awareness and raise funds for Alabama Credit Union’s Secret Meals For Hungry Children program. As of the Fall 2016 semester, these classes have raised more than $100,000.
This money has provided food packs to be discreetly slipped into the backpacks of more than 790 Tuscaloosa-area children in need every weekend throughout an entire school year.
To celebrate, the Secret Meals GRAND Gala: A Celebration of Partnerships and Progress will be held at NorthRiver Yacht Club on Thursday, Nov. 10, 7-10 p.m. Tickets include food, drinks, live music and a silent auction.
