This experience will be life changing because it will not only help me grow as a leader, it will also provide me the amazing opportunity to make a difference in the life of others. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: No Hunger, No Danger
No Hunger, No Danger is a campus-wide initiative that seeks to address food insecurity of vulnerable students at the University of the Ozarks. This initiative aims to build a resilient community where students, faculty, and staff can cooperate together to make sure Ozarks becomes a food-secure campus for both local and international students.
Throughout the project, there will be 5 food security workshops reaching a total of 400 students, 2 cultural food activities reaching a total of 500 students, and 10 campaigns to volunteer in the campus Food for Thought Garden, which is one of the main producers and suppliers of fresh foods to the community in Clarksville, Arkansas. The long term goals are creating institutional agreements to improve and diversify food options, as well as creating 1 food reclamation agreement to distribute edible food to students on and off campus.
