In January 1954, Alpha Gam sister Margaret Moffat Toy pioneered the first home-delivery meal program in the U.S. That program is now known as Meals on Wheels. Today, we are proud partners with both Meals on Wheels and Feeding America. Through service, awareness and fundraising, we join their efforts in the fight to overcome food insecurity right here on our own community.
The Alpha Gamma Delta Purpose calls us to “welcome the opportunity of contributing to the world’s work.” In addition to our fight against hunger, Alpha Gams all across North America participate in an annual Week of Service each February. Collegiate and alumnae members serve in a variety of ways and contribute their time, energy, funds and voices to joyfully serve others.
Each year, the Zeta Zeta chapter holds our annual Tetter-Totter-a-Thon. During this week long event, we partner with another organization on campus to raise money and awareness for Fighting Hunger. This event is held in D Term, and can be seen on the Quad, rain or shine! 1 in 5 children and adults are unsure of where their next meal will come from. Along with additional food drives and fundraisers, we strive to bring attention and help those who are food insecure and win the fight against hunger.
