Food for the Soul is a nonprofit faith-based charitable organization committed to feeding the hungry children/students in our communities through our Backpack Program and feeding hungry athletes before their games. CSCMP DFW has partnered with this fabulous organization in the past to bring supply chain professionals together to volunteer time and effort to kit food items together for their Backpack Program. This year we have invited UNT's Logistics Student Association to join us, giving students an opportunity to work and network with logistics industry professionals and to create a recruiting opportunity for managers seeking students. After the work is done, the volunteer group and any who are able to join, will retreat to Denton County Brewing Company in downtown Denton for happy hour networking. We understand getting to Denton at 5pm is not easy or predictable - the event does not have a hard start time- so just arrive as soon as you can. If you can only make it for happy hour at 6:45pm, that's okay as well. It's a clean facility and we won't be getting dirty- but wearing comfortable, cool clothing is a good idea.
Volunteer Time: 5:00-6:30pm
Food for the Soul Facility Address:
2321 N Masch Branch Rd. Unit 344
