Secret Meals

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – A group of six students at The University of Alabama has partnered with Secret Meals For Hungry Children to raise money and awareness for local children with food insecurity in our state.

The students are hosting Oktoberfest Feeds, a trivia night benefiting the organization on Wednesday, Oct. 23 at World of Beer from 6 to 10 p.m. The event will include special deals on World of Beer’s signature items, Oktoberfest-themed trivia, live music and a tap takeover from a local brewery.

“Each semester, my students put their hearts into developing efforts to help feed local, needy children,” said Susan Daria, an advertising and public relations instructor at the University of Alabama. “Since 2011, we have raised over $185,000 that has gone directly to feed West Alabama children.”

This year, students have a goal of increasing that number to $200,000.

There will be donation barrels set up at World of Beer, and money donated will help feed the 2,500 children who currently receive Secret Meals food packs.

“Learning about Secret Meals has been so eye-opening and encouraged us to be ambitious as ever in our fundraising efforts to help these children,” said Allie Schneider, a public relations student at the University of Alabama. “I’m looking forward to having a fun night at World of Beer while helping combat childhood food insecurity.”

Oktoberfest Feeds is a free event. Mentioning you are with Secret Meals For Hungry Children will ensure a portion of your check going toward the cause.
