You never know what might happen when you take a class at Gustavus. You might make a best friend. You might learn that you really can write a 20-page paper. Or you might find a topic that sparks a lifelong interest. This last possibility was the case for Laura Mueller ’92.
On Feb. 12-13, 2011, Gustavus Adolphus College, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, and Feed My Starving Children collaborated to host an event on the Gustavus campus that addressed the complexities of food security and local and global hunger through speakers, advocacy work, and an emergency food pack. The event drew more than 1,000 people and the result was an increased awareness of food and hunger issues as well as the packing of meals to feed 256,608 people.
