Fast-a-Thon Raises Funds for Amazing Grace Food Pantry
Wesleyan's Interfaith Justice League sponsored the third-annual Fast-a-Thon Oct. 1 in Beckham Hall. They agreed to fast for the day, and donate their unused meals or student meal points to the local soup kitchen, Amazing Grace Food Pantry. The day-long fast concluded with a "break-fast" banquet.
More than 1,360 students participated in the event, raising $17,061.91 for the food pantry.
Participants were given a Fast-a-Thon T-shirt for participating.
