The drive took place during the fall 2010 semester and originated from an idea by Dr. H.G. Parsa. For the third year in a row, Dr. Parsa encouraged students in his Restaurant Management and Cost Control classes to donate food during the holiday season. This year, other professors followed suit and over 600 pounds of food were collected, triple the amount donated in 2009.
Food Production Laboratory Manager and Adjunct Professor, Peder Hagglund, transported the donation to the Second Harvest.
Dr. Parsa expressed appreciation that so many members of the Rosen College family addressed the problem of hunger in Central Florida, “Contributions by students…far exceeded our expectations.”
