HEN Webinar: Tackling College Food Insecurity
Thursday, May 17, 2018
2:00-3:00PM EST 
 
Please join us for a webinar presented by Alana Davidson. Alana Davidson is a Masters of Science Candidate in food policy and applied nutrition at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. While as an undergraduate nutrition and dietetics student at the University of New Hampshire, she began a campus wide initiative and program, Swipe It Forward, to address college food insecurity after her independent research found it to be an issue on campus. Previously, she has worked for the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC), Share Our Strength, and End Hunger Connecticut!

College food insecurity has been gaining attention these last four years as more research has been conducted on this topic. This webinar will cover what research exists, a case study example of the University of New Hampshire’s program Swipe It Forward to address this issue, and a few bills that exist on college food insecurity and SNAP.
