SHaW Center gives out bags of snack food


The Student Health and Wellness (SHaW) Center gave out bags of snack foods Tuesday afternoon in front of the Theater Arts building to address food insecurity as the semester ends.

Students were asked to follow the SHaW Center on social media in exchange for a bag of food. The bags included foods like macaroni and cheese, fruit cups, oatmeal, cup noodles, granola bars, applesauce, crackers and cookies.

The SHaW center gave out 225 bags of food Tuesday on the Rockville campus and 175 on Monday at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus, said Tahrea Flemming Mensah, who was helping distribute the bags. Later this week, on Thursday, the SHaW Center plans to give out 150 bags of food at the Germantown campus.
