Students host luncheon and canned food drive in honor of Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, the UNC School of Social Work’s Black Student Caucus hosted “A Taste of Black Heritage.”

Faculty, staff and students were invited to a tasty potluck at the School on Feb. 28 to enjoy samples of traditional black cuisine. Attendees were asked to bring a canned food donation to benefit a local organization.

“The event was a big success — we had over 35 people in attendance in addition to the members of the Black Caucus,” said caucus co-leader Erica Mayes-Gordon, MSW student. “We had a lot of faculty, staff and student support, both with bringing items to serve and coming to enjoy the festivities. We had everything from fried chicken to Grandma Cain’s Pound Cake! We also received a great deal of food donations and plan to deliver them to the Durham Rescue Mission after spring break.”
