" I am thrilled to be apart of the Millenial Fellowship and this opportunity to work with students towards a goal that will not only positively benefit our school's community but the lives of students. As a garden manager, I have gotten the chance to eat and grow fruits and vegetables using sustainable methods. With what I have learned I plan to spread my knowledge to my community and my Millenial Fellows so I can assist with eliminating hunger at our campus. Allowing us to leave a lasting foundation towards dealing with food insecurity in a campus community and communities worldwide. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: No Hunger, No Danger
No Hunger, No Danger addresses food insecurity that occurs on campus. The plan involves incorporating the campus' Food for Thought Garden, with the idea of providing healthy foods and insight on just how the food is grown. The garden will provide food that is accessible to all students and staff. The plan intends to educate the campus' community and eliminate taboos that accompanied hunger among students in college. We plan to widen the campus community surrounding the garden and increase student involvement in the growing of foods for the campus' community. All while spreading knowledge to our fellow students on hunger and sustainable growing methods.
