Tamales update: Cambio Para Cambio

Submitted by Brenda Resendiz

The Hispanic American Leadership Organization, or HALO, a registered departmental student organization participated in this year's Cambio Para Cambio campaign. Cambio para Cambio, which translates to "Change for Change," took place during Hispanic Heritage Month.

We are incredibly grateful for the support that our K-State community has shown for this incredible campaign! We had not anticipated the volume of the orders that were placed, with orders adding up to a total of more than 1,200 individual tamales. Our HALO volunteers have worked hard to fill every order alongside the incredible group of students, staff and professors from Lacy's Fresh Fare and Catering, as well as the amazing support from Hispanic Development Fund to fulfill the rest of the orders.

We apologize that you were unable to receive your delivery on time. There was a bit of confusion and a delay in scheduling, as well as securing enough volunteers, and that caused our tamale pickup date to be later than intended. Rest assured that this incident will not happen again.

The final pickup dates will take place on the third floor of the Morris Family Multicultural Student Center on the following dates and times:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 29, 6-8 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Nov. 30, 6-8 p.m.

You're invited to join the group "Tamale Pickup" on GroupMe for updates or contact us if you have any questions. 

Our work would not be possible without our community’s support, so thank you again.

Vamos con todo with Purple Pride,

Con amor from our HALO Executive Team
