The donation came from money raised during the Food Fast campaign. Students donated meals and dining dollars during October with student advisers and Sodexo staff playing an important role in promotion. Sodexo was able to present a check for more than $8,020 to the United Way, one of the highest amounts ever raised by the Food Fast campaign. On behalf of the United Way of Adair County/Northeast Missouri, campaign co-chairs Tony Vazzana and Sally Detweiler would like to thank the students, faculty, staff, emeriti and retirees of Truman, as well as Sodexo and its employees, for making this year’s campaign a success. This year, the University surpassed the campus goal of $56,000.
