UTC Psychology Professor Helps Feed the Hungry

Dr. Laura Hyers of the UTC Psychology Department is involved in a volunteer group called "Food Not Bombs," which meets Sundays at noon in Miller Park, and feeds approximately fifty people.

According to Hyers, local restaurants and grocers contribute ingredients, and volunteers cook and serve a stew.

"'Food Not Bombs' was started twenty years ago in San Francisco as part of the anti-war movement," Hyers says.

The group is also in need of warm clothing and blankets by Sunday, November 19, according to Hyers. To contact Hyers about donation, e-mail Laura-Hyers@utc.edu.

"If you are interested in joining our effort, feel free to come to Miller Park at noon any Sunday to eat and/or help out," Hyers says.
