SAN LUIS OBISPO - AmeriCorps, Cal Poly students and the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County teamed up to honor the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.
Students with Cal Poly's Beyond Shelter program served dinner to clients of the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter in San Luis Obispo Monday night.
Student organizers say they spent the day putting together enough meals to serve 130 people.
"I think most of us are in it and like to do it because it feels good," says student Ashley DeGuzman. "When you see the changes, you see the people you're helping, it's completely different, and I love it."
On Tuesday, students from Cal Poly's MultiCultural Center will gather in the University Union Plaza on campus for a celebration of Dr. King's life through dance, poetry and speeches.
