Experiential Learning Institute co-directors Brandon Everest and Kristy McDonald each led a signature EL project this month. Everest’s was the 7th annual Walk for Hunger and Homelessness Awareness which drew several dozen participants to downtown Traverse City last week to gain perspective on homelessness in the region and what service providers are doing to mitigate these issues. McDonald led the Food for Thought project, which collected food and funds to provide 150 Thanksgiving meals for students and community members.
