As a capstone to the Helen P. Denit Honors Program's "Thought for Food" series, the "Get FRESH! Documentary Screening and Fundraiser for Guatemala Student Service Experience" will take place on Tuesday, April 10 beginning at 5 p.m. in the UB Student Center, 21 W. Mt. Royal Ave. The event, including a screening of the acclaimed documentary FRESH, an opportunity to meet and talk with the documentary's director and producer Ana Joanes, and a special dinner catered by the Dogwood Restaurant, will serve as a fundraiser for an important cause: In July, a group of UB Denit Honors students will travel to Guatemala to help improve the lives of indigenous Mayan community members. Each student will build an energy-efficient stove for a deserving family; the students' individual program fee will pay for all materials as well as the labor of a local mason who will help them build the stoves.
The screening of FRESH will begin at 5 p.m. in the Lucy and Vernon Wright Theater in the Student Center. At 7 p.m., a reception and dinner will begin in the Bogomolny Room adjacent to the theater.
