We have spent the past few months planning activities for the new FoodWhat Alumni Association. As a sort of test run, we received 30 tickets from Danny Keith of Grind Out Hunger to take a group of youth to a warriors game! Chris and Connor, the Alumni Planner interns, made over 100 phone calls to past FoodWhat Summer program participants to rally a crew and the turn-out was awesome.
This was our first Alumni Association event, and we ended up with representatives from all seven years of programming. This was our first opportunity to reconnect in a meaningful way, so while the game was going, we passed around evaluation sheets to gather information about college, careers, and general facts about life post-FoodWhat.
Everyone had an awesome time at the game, and it was really fun to reconnect. We are looking forward to more Alumni events in the future!!
