I chose to work with Jessica on the Food Security Project because I was unaware that food security was an issue at Fresno State. I was on board immediately after hearing Jessica’s enthusiasm for the project, and for the biggest event of the semester, The Food Security and Hunger Awareness Banquet. Jessica was a student coordinator at the Bulldog Pantry, and was pivotal in its on-going operation.
College students, including myself, aren’t always concerned with what we have to eat, as long as we have something to eat. We have a tendency to go towards what’s most convenient, and that’s not always healthy or affordable. From the beginning of my service-learning experience, I recognized the impact of the services provided by the Food Security Project.
