STUDENT PROJECT OVERVIEW

Students in Food in Culture and Social Justice complete at least one credit of experiential/service learning by volunteering with food-related organizations. Additional credits are permitted, with one credit equaling thirty hours of work. 

Students often find volunteer opportunities on their own, but the FCSJ Program Coordinator can also provide suggestions. As a learning by doing course, students are not required to write a final paper, but they are responsible for tracking and submitting a log of their hours and tasks.  Upon completion of these hours, the volunteer supervisor should send the Program Coordinator an Email confirming the student's satisfactory completion of the volunteer hours.
