"Food is such and integral part of everyday life. It has a huge impact on mental and physical health. I want to help improve food security for my community. No one should go hungry. "
- Agroecology, Senior
"While food has an incredible power to bring people together, it simultaneously holds the power of destruction. I envision a future community where everybody has access to nutritious food regardless of economic status, where connection grows around a dinner table, and all voices are recognized as valuable. I want to work to change our food system to allow and foster connection and wellbeing through food!"
- Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Senior
“Food security plays a prominent role in students being able to succeed in their education without worrying where their next meal is coming from. My interest in food security is driven by my desire to support student wellness and success on-campus. I am passionate about connecting students with the resources available to them to form a strong and healthy MSU community"
- Biochemistry with a Genetics Minor, Senior
“Basic needs and food security are crucial to student success in academics! Without support, students who struggle with food insecurity can suffer in the classroom and in the community. Here at the Bob, I want to work to support students and their basic needs through advocacy, education, and programming to raise awareness of basic needs resources on and off-campus."
- Sustainable Food and Bioenergy- Food Systems, Sophomore
“I am very passionate about food security and food waste, and want to do what I can to make a difference and support my local community when it comes to having access to good, nutritious food."

"I care about food security because I know what it is like to feel insecure with food availability. Also, I believe that there aren't enough people out there that care about food security and it is a really big issue! I would really like to connect people with fresh local foods that are good for them both mentally and physically."
- Human Development and Family Science
“After taking a community nutrition class, I became passionate about food security work and increasing awareness around campus for various resources available to students. It is both amazing and inspiring for me to see how the community is working together to help one another, and it is my goal to reduce the stigma surrounding food insecurity."
