UNCW Chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha Recognized for Philanthropic Work

Wednesday, June 03, 2015

The UNCW chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity collected 134,828 pounds of food during the 2014-2015 academic year for Feeding America, the third most of any chapter in the country.

Feeding America is a network of 200 food banks that leads the fight against hunger in the United States. In total, more than 3.6 million pounds of food was collected by the fraternity’s 190 chapters and colonies.

The Delta Sigma Zeta chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha was founded at UNCW in 2010. With the motto of "Every Man, a Man," its members routinely participate in a variety of community service and social events and perform strongly in intramural sports.  In addition to the food collection efforts, the brothers rode a teeter totter continuously from April 13-15 in front of Randall Library to raise awareness for hunger in America.

“The Feeding America network is grateful to the men of Lambda Chi Alpha,” said Kelli Walker, director of corporate partnerships for Feeding America. “Not only for their incredible achievement in collecting pounds of food in their local communities but for the service and work many of the chapters provide in neighborhoods across the country.”
