Not all college students eat all the meals they pay for in their meal plan, especially getting up for breakfast.

But two Lenoir-Rhyne University students came up with a generous idea to get their money's worth.

Twenty-two-year-old Quinn Scarvey of Salisbury and 22-year-old Simone Anderson of Boone realized they each had more than 100 meals left on the plan as graduation approached this week.

Scarvey suggested a donation to the Hickory Soup Kitchen and Lenoir-Rhyne Food Service Director Chad Young thought it was a good idea.

Scarvey and Anderson walked with a group of people from the soup kitchen to the school cafeteria Wednesday.

The group from the soup kitchen enjoyed everything from the salad bar and deli to turkey breasts with cornbread stuffing and pizza.
