SNAP Awareness Day

PLEASE NOTE THE DATE HAS CHANGED TO TUESDAY, MARCH 10th!

The Office of Sustainability and partners across campus are happy to host a day of SNAP Awareness and Enrollment activities!

SNAP is the nation’s most effective program, keeping 8 million Americans out of poverty, including 4 million children. Over 900,000 Tennesseans rely on SNAP to escape hunger.

Sparks, Becky left a positive review 3/9/2020

I loved it! The documentary was so eye-opening! Leah's presentation really drove home the point that this is not a problem that is occurring elsewhere--it's happening right here on campus. I've been telling everyone about what I learned.
