First Year Eats

As founder of The Hunger Consortium, the LAUNCH office leads by example through the new First Year Eats program. We partnered up with H-E-B and Integ, to bring a unique set of hands-on activities and resources to students in our Learning Communities.

First Year Eats has two primary goals:

  1. Equip Texas A&M students with smart budgeting tips and information about community-centered food preparation
  2. Lay the foundation for a community that collaboratively addresses student hunger and food insecurity
