Salt Lake Community College Participates in Hunger & Homelessness Week

Salt Lake Community College will hold a series of events in recognition of national Hunger & Homelessness week. The College has dedicated a week of activities to raise awareness about the issues of hunger, homelessness, and poverty. All events are free and open to the public.

On Monday, November 12, the College presents the movie, ‘Have You Seen Clem?’ at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus Student Event Center from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Showings of the film will also take place the following day from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Jordan Campus. This movie provides insight into the lives of those without a permanent residence.

On Thursday, November 15, the College will hold an Oxfam Hunger Banquet at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus in the Student Center Oak Room from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

A themed dance featuring the styles of the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s will be held on Friday November 16 in the Student Event Center on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus from 8:00 p.m. – midnight. "Students from the College's Student Life & Leadership worked with students from the SLCC Black Student Union to put on this dance," said SLCC Student Employment specialist Billy Walker. "We wanted to have something that would lift students' spirits and motivate us all to get up and do something about Hunger and Homelessness."

The College also held a LIVE concert to benefit the Utah Food Bank featuring the bands: Band on the Run, The Agenda, and Missing Persons.
