Abstract

This poster presentation examines the ongoing efforts of PUSH, (President's United to Solve Hunger) an international initiative across university campuses that focuses on alleviating hunger on campus. The Central Washington chapter differs from other university campuses as it is student-led and student-initiated. Through examining PUSH’s food justice initiatives such as the Wildcat Pantry, we can determine how our efforts have impacted the CWU community at large. With the new establishment of the Wildcat Pantry, a free food and supply resource, our team has faced several challenges such as consistent staffing, inventory maintenance, and social awareness.
