DENTON (UNT), Texas --  UNT Dining Services will celebrate the life and vision of Martin Luther King Jr. at Kerr Hall Cafeteria beginning Monday, Jan. 20, through Friday, Jan. 24.

Chefs at UNT have arranged a menu of diverse foods from countries around the world that will be served at Kerr Hall Cafeteria. Information about King’s life, accomplishments and vision will be displayed around the cafeteria, and students will have an opportunity to share their own dreams for the future on a ‘dream board’ in the cafeteria.

“By offering students a globally diverse range of foods, we hope to start a discussion about King’s life, vision and dream for a diverse and tolerant world,” said Ken Botts, special projects manager for UNT Dining Services. “Kerr Cafeteria will have displays with information about King’s life and accomplishments, and we’ll also celebrate his birthday, which was Jan. 15.”
