KnightQuest 2020: Combat Hunger

Are you ready to combat hunger?

This year, the campus community will take on an issue that affects thousands of people in our area: Hunger and Food Insecurity.

During KnightQuest 2020, teams will earn points based on raising money, collecting donations and volunteering at food banks during the competition period, which runs from Sept. 21–Dec. 1. The team that earns the most points will receive a grand prize.

KnightQuest: Combat Hunger is an opportunity for YOU—students, faculty and staff—to join forces with your fellow Knights in support of Central Penn College’s philanthropic initiative this year.

“Hunger is a growing problem in our communities. It affects too many people. But we can do something about it! I encourage the entire campus community to support and participate in KnightQuest 2020: Combat Hunger. By joining together, we can make a significant impact in the fight against hunger!”

– Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams, President of Central Penn College

How does the KnightQuest challenge work?

It’s similar to the original KnightQuest, which was a competitive fundraising program introduced a few years ago as a way to educate students on philanthropy while raising money in support of the Education Foundation.

But this new version of KnightQuest isn’t limited to students, it’s for the entire campus community.

How does the competition work?

Points are awarded based on collected food items, cash donations and volunteer hours.

  • 1 food item donated = 1 point  
  • $1 raised/donated = 3 points 
  • 1 hour of volunteering = 10 points (.5 hours would equal 5 points)
