The nutrition team has focused its efforts on education and getting healthy food options more readily available to students. Each month, the Nutrition Team leads Grocery Trivia; students who attend these events can win a free bag of groceries by correctly answering questions related to nutrition and other wellness areas. Additionally, the Nutrition Team partners with the BrightSide Buyers Club to cohost Fruit of the Month, where students can get a free piece of fruit during Convo Hour. They also bring speakers to campus, such as Carrie Peterson, dietician for all Minnesota professional sports teams.
