PILLARD: Fasting for New Haven

Aidan Pillard is a freshman in Jonathan Edwards College and is a part of the Dwight Hall Member group Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project. His article urging students to take part in the YHHAP Fast was published in the Yale Daily News on April 13, 2017.

“Last semester, the Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project raised over $10,000 for homelessness relief in New Haven during the YHHAP Fast. I’m writing to encourage you to join your fellow Yalies and the generous Yale Dining administration to make the Fast a success. On Friday, April 14, donate your breakfast, lunch and dinner meal swipes. Take a break from your routine to dine out or use your guest swipes to eat in the dining hall. Yale Dining gives the cost of the meal swipes to YHHAP, and we donate the proceeds directly to New Haven projects to alleviate hunger and homelessness.”
