Lenoir-Rhyne University donates remaining meal plan meals to homeless

The student and Aramark idea led to over 100 people having an all-you-can-eat, buffet-style meal in Lenoir-Rhyne’s dining hall.

HICKORY, N.C.—Quinn Scarvey of Salisbury graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne University Friday night, but picking up her diploma didn’t make headlines. What she did for Hickory’s homeless population in her last week of school did.

Scarvey and a fellow elementary education major, Simone Anderson of Boone, asked whether they could donate remaining meals on their college food plans to feed the hungry.

The idea — and enthusiastic cooperation from Aramark, the college’s food service — led to more than 100 people who usually eat at the Hickory Soup Kitchen having an all-you-can-eat, buffet-style meal in Lenoir-Rhyne’s dining hall.
