The Starkville Area Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge Spring program brings in out-of-state college students from all over the country during their respective spring breaks to build a Habitat home. Area churches provide a noontime devotional and hospitality in many forms for these groups to include snacks and lunch at the worksite. Closure to the workday is a visit to local churches for fellowship, southern hospitality, and delicious food.
Anyone interested in providing a meal for a Collegiate Challenge out-of-town group may do so by contacting the Habitat Office, 662-324-7008, firstname.lastname@example.org. Lunch is served at the workplace with night meal at a location of choice by meal provider.
