Stefanie Bova's Virtual Food Drive
As a UNLV student studying Nutrition Science, I am passionate about people receiving proper nutrition to main life and growth. I was assigned a project where I had to address a social problem in our community and what could I do about it. With all the lights, gambling, and entertainment Las Vegas has to offer, it would not appear that the city would be struggling with hunger. Clark County has about 279,000 people and for EVERY 6 individuals, 1 is struggling with hunger. This hits home for me for there was a time in my life where I struggled to feed myself and was too ashamed to ask for help. I partnered up with Three Square because they consistently focus on this problem. I want to not only bring awareness to this issue but to also provide resources of how to get help or to donate. $1 provides 3 meals.
