Colgate COVE Hunger and Homeless Outreach went to D.C

Colgate COVE Hunger and Homeless Outreach went to D.C

America is one of the world’s wealthiest nations, especially when it comes to our agricultural production, yet enough food goes to waste each day to feed every hungry adult and child living in the nation. Each night some five million children go to bed hungry. As many as 3.5 million people each year have no bed to call their own, as they experience homelessness.

In the past winter, a group of Colgate students went to Washington D.C to reach out to the hunger and homeless population by participating in one of the COVE Alternative Break trips. The group explored the root causes and efforts to improve the hunger and homelessness situation in our country’s capital. They did this through a series of site visits listening to guest speakers how have overcome homelessness and having our own group discussions. They got some hands-on experience by volunteering at soup kitchens, shelters and also participating in a pop-up food market at a school in a low-income school district.

Happy Wednesday!

Hope everyone is doing well with the sudden snow this morning. No matter how sunny it seems to be in the morning, keeping your boots on would always be a smart choice. Anytime, stay warm!


Do you know that there are actually over 35 COVE groups focusing on different aspects including community advocacy, education, environmental stewardship, and public health? If you want to get involved, try taking a leadership role or just simply want to learn more about the volunteer opportunities, come to the activities fair this Friday. Almost all the COVE groups will be there in Huntington Gym from 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm this Friday afternoon, and many of them are seeking new leadership or potential new leaders for the next academic year.

Sound interesting to you? See you on Friday!


Even though it is only the second week of the new semester, some of the COVE groups and individuals have already stood out with their extraordinary performance. Please join me and congratulate the following students:
