IOWA CITY — Students from the Newman Catholic Student Center at the University of Iowa served an “Americana” dinner to benefit Mary’s Meals March 26. The dinner raised $770 for the organization, which aims to provide chronically hungry children around the world with one meal every school day, encouraging education that can lift them out of poverty in later life. To date, Newman Center has raised $4,488 towards its $10,500 fundraising goal.
The public is invited to the upcoming Global Poverty and Hunger Alleviation Forum at Newman Center April 5 from 7-8 p.m. to learn more about global poverty and how it can be alleviated.
