Sodexo Donates to Student’s Charity of Choice

Truman student Demira Handzic was selected as one of four winners in Sodexo’s Meal Madness National Prize Sweepstakes.

More than 600 Sodexo campuses participated in the Meal Madness event that encouraged students to explain why a food-related charity of their choice should receive a $2,500 donation in their name. Handzic's essay was one of only four winners among more than 45,000 submissions nationwide. As a selected winner, Handzic received a $250 gift card from Well's Fargo and Hope’s Kitchen in Kirksville will receive $2,500 in her name. Approximately 400 meals are provided each month August to May through Hope’s Kitchen at the Mary Immaculate Cafeteria.
