Millennium Fellowship Project: Student Initiative on Food Security (SIFS)
It is a campus-wide initiative by the name of Student Initiative on Food Security (SIFS) that seeks to address food insecurity of vulnerable students at the University of the Ozarks. Student Initiative on Food Security (SIFS) seeks to:
*Educate the campus community on topics related to food insecurity to eliminate the taboos that come along with being hungry.
*Contribute to the improvement of the university’s Food for Thought garden, the main producer and supplier of fresh foods to the community.
*Create the first campus food pantry to provide food supplies to students at risk of malnourishment.
*Propose plans of action throughout the academic year that seek to further improve food security on campus. These can rank from cultural activities to policy change.
The Student Initiative on Food Security (SIFS) looks to build a resilient community where students, faculty, and staff can cooperate together to make sure Ozarks becomes an even more food-secure campus for both local and international students.
