Student Achievement


As part of a class assignment, students in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition Transfer and Major Change Learning Community were asked to think about ways to help support food assistance needs in the community. The result was planning an on-campus food pantry. The SHOP (Students Helping Our Peers) opened in February in the Food Sciences Building. Pictured are the organizations officers (front to back) Andrew Pugh, Sarah Schwanebeck, Hailey Boudreau, Melissa Van Norden, Kelsey Webb, Kara Moss, Amanda Haffarnan and Tania Lee. The opening of the SHOP garnered national television coverage and a spot in an Inside Higher Ed article. Watch the video and read more about the SHOP at www.ag.iastate.edu/stories.
