Our students, faculty, and partners apply their learning to meet local community and global challenges. As volunteers, activists, and leaders, we commit to service and outreach efforts to grow as individuals and as a community.
A PACKed Kitchen
This program strives to make cooking, nutrition, and gardening fun for everyone. Students teach Cooking Matters classes to participants of the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, a non-profit organization that pioneers innovative solutions designed to end hunger.
Nutrition NUTS Program
Students visit preschools to read nutrition and health-related books to children, teach parents about health and wellness topics, or provide nutrition education to preschool teachers. Participants gain respect for cultural diversity and public health issues.
Feed the Pack
A community-based initiative sustained by the greater NC State community to combat food insecurity. Our department and the Food Science Club participate in ongoing food drives to support students and other team members in need.
