With over 250 clubs and organizations on campus, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect group to join. That is why this week I wanted to highlight SNA or the Student Nutrition Association. I joined SNA last year and wish I hade joined earlier! SNA is a club on campus that “consists of students with an interest in nutrition. SNA organizes activities involved in community service work, fundraising and educational outreach, as well as taking part in group socials and creating a cohesive and knowledgeable group of students.”
SNA is open to all students, there are nutrition majors and non-nutrition majors; anyone that is interested in making UNH and our community a healthier place, then this is a great club for you! Meetings are once a week, currently Tuesday evenings at 7pm. Each month we do about two community service projects such as working with Wildcat Friends, or with children about healthy snacking and drinks in the Durham area. We promote healthy choices all while having fun and often times eating great food!
On top of reaching out to the community, our other mission is to raise money and help support the Haitian Health foundation. On December 3rd we will be having a Fro-Yo event to help raise money, so please go to Fro-Yo World on December 3rd and mention “Haitian Health Foundation” to have 15% of your purchase help a great cause!
So if you are interested in nutrition, helping the community, and love food check out the Student Nutrition Association! And don’t forget to grab some Fro-Yo December 3rd! @SNA_UNH #UNH16 #UNHhealthservices
