  • Recommended Resource: The resource I would like to share with the students is the Student Advocacy Center. They offer a variety of services like Grab-n-go snacks, food, personal counseling, support groups. emergency assistance and will also assist students with WIC/TANF/MEDICAID/SNAP.
  • Reflection: I wish I would have utilized the Pantry while in college. Taking full-time courses and working full-time made it difficult to squeeze in snacks or dinner.
