NC Sweet Potato Gleaning

NC Sweet Potato Gleaning

The North Carolina Chapter participates in the College of Agriculture and Life Science’s Agri-Life Council with other groups within the college. The council invited brothers to participate in a service project with Wake Interfaith Food Shuttle on November 9th. Four brothers traveled to Johnston County to glean sweet potatoes. We collected leftover potatoes that were not picked up with tractors. We enjoyed digging around the roots for over two hours and collected about 100 pounds of potatoes per person.  It was surprising how relaxing the dirt was and we really enjoyed the project which helps feed hungry people. The event was a great opportunity to interact with students from other organizations within the college.

One of NC State University’s most treasured landmarks is the Free Expression Tunnel under a railroad track that runs through the middle of our campus. Students are free to paint anything they would like in this tunnel and it is also the site of campus events and celebrations. The Union Activities Board decided to have a party outside the tunnel after the polls closed on Election Day in order to create a feeling of campus unity. The event also promoted positive artwork in the tunnel...

On Saturday September 8th, six brothers met to pick up trash around a stream that runs through NCSU’s campus. This is a project that the North Carolina Chapter usually participates in once a semester to aid university maintenance. Our service coordinator organized the project and supplied the group with gloves and trash bags. At 10am, brothers cleaned up an area that many joggers and bikers frequent for about an hour. It was a great morning to be outside. Brothers enjoyed spending time together while beautifying our campus.
