Millennium Fellowship Project: Fresh For You

Fresh For You is an initiative to encourage healthy eating habits and to increase the accessibility to affordable, fresh produce for college students. This initiative will include a forum where students can share their healthy recipes with their peers. Additionally, Fresh For You will hold events where students can gather, eat, and cook together. Lastly, Fresh For You seeks to address food insecurity on campus by mobilizing students to volunteer with local food pantries. Additionally, Fresh For You will work to educate others on the causes of food insecurity within the community and the best approaches to sustainably address it. During the fellowship period (August-December 2021), Fresh for You will aim to have shared at least 15 different healthy recipes. Additionally, Fresh for You will aim to organize at least 3 opportunities for students to gather and at least 3 volunteering and educational sessions.
