Come volunteer with us! You can do the same things that student workers and club members do including assisting in the pantry or with research. We would also be happy to assist you with a class project or assignment that you may be doing as well.
Come intern or conduct class projects with us! Oh SNAP! offers a internships for students of any major. You can meet with the food pantry coordinator, health educator or faculty adviser to see if it is a good fit! Call to make an appointment.
For the Social Work Department, Oh SNAP! may be used as an internship for SW 255, 355, 682, and 683.
We also make an effort to advocate the college student’s needs and concerns in order to ease restrictions on CalFresh eligibility through surveys and research. Food insecurity is a significant issue among college students, especially for students with dependent children who are pursuing college education; so, we are making efforts to strengthen support systems to increase access to nutritious foods for students in need. Although the campus food pantry supplies some foods for students in need, it can’t provide them with increasing amounts of much needed food due to the limited funding. For this problem, we provide shuttle services from the campus to Arcata Food Pantry every Saturday so that students are able to get more foods from the local food pantry. In addition, CalFresh eligibility requirements for college students would be revised because we are trying to advocate for increased ease in the eligibility rules for CalFresh through various channels. Therefore, it is necessary to consider other initiatives such as campus gardens and policies to increase access to nutritious foods and, more broadly, improve students’ economic stability and well-being.
Oh SNAP may be able to assist you with a class project or assignment! Feel free to ask if we can be of any assistance.
Join the Oh SNAP! club! We are committed to reducing barriers to accessing CalFresh and other public benefits aimed at improving student health and academic success. Help us plan events, shop, restock our food pantry, and more.
Oh SNAP! is open to all Humboldt State University students.
