D&E Student Assembly Hosting Special Holiday Feed the City

ELKINS – Davis & Elkins College Student Assembly is putting their ideas for community engagement to work. On Tuesday, December 3, the student organization, along with D&E Dining Services, will present a special edition of Feed the City, a monthly outreach program typically hosted by the Summit Church of Elkins designed to provide a free meal to anyone in need.

Organizers note that the regularly scheduled December Feed the City event will still take place on Tuesday, December 31.

Feed the City takes place at the Railyard Restaurant in downtown Elkins beginning at 4:30 p.m. and continues until all the food is served. Various area organizations and volunteers have partnered with the program since its inception.

The D&E Student Assembly’s decision to lend support grew out of a meeting with the Elkins-Randolph County Chamber to explore new and innovative ways D&E students can lead and serve within the larger community.

“We want to intertwine the College community with the community of Elkins,” said Student Assembly Vice President Kalvin Spells. “Feed the City plays a huge role within Student Assembly’s engagement with the community. It allows us to show many things to the community, but most importantly our drive for giving back.”

To assist with the special Feed the City, the D&E students will work with Dining Services to prepare and pay for the food, serve the meals and clean up after the event.

D&E Vice President for Student Affairs Scott Goddard commends the students for doing their part to make a difference in the community.

“The world is a negative place right now,” Goddard said. “We need to spread positivity and it doesn’t have to be anything major. It is just opening up your arms a little bit. That’s exactly what is happening here. The students of Davis & Elkins College are embracing the Elkins community. This event celebrates community and the mission of Davis & Elkins College: To prepare and inspire students for success and thoughtful engagement in the world.”
