Award for best Applied Experience.

Abstract

This is a pilot project being conducted at St Cloud State University with the purpose of helping to alleviate financial insecurity as well as food insecurity for St Cloud State University students so that they can succeed to their highest abilities. We are an on campus project being run to help students who are in need of financial assistance. We work together to provide a safe, nurturing, and welcoming environment for students to come and discuss some of the issues and problems they might be facing. We work together as a team to help serve these students and connect them with the tools and resources that they need in order to succeed. Previous literature and research shows a strong inverse relationship between academic achievement and food insecurity. The goal of our project is to help shed light on the prevalence of food insecurity faced by many students at St Cloud State University and help offer them programs, resources, and tools in order to help them strive to their highest abilities.
