            Fall Internships at Second Harvest Heartland

            The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) allows income-qualifying
            families to receive assistance in buying groceries each month, ensuring that individuals don’t have to choose between paying rent and putting food on the table. Unfortunately, in Minnesota only 65% of eligible households receive these benefits, and many of those missing out are children and seniors.

            The SNAP Outreach Intern will work in the community through contact with Second
            Harvest Heartland’s partners, including food shelves, health clinics and social services
            organizations. Interns will interact directly with clients, prescreening interested individuals and families for food and health programs and referring them to application assistance. The SNAP Outreach Intern will gain experience relevant to community organizing and outreach, nutrition education and social services.

      “Thank a Teacher” Project

      The Center for Educational Innovation is a program that helps students express their gratitude to professors, instructors or TAs who have made a difference in their education.

      We call it the “Thank a Teacher” project and it’s easy. Students go to the website, write a note of thanks and we take it from there. Students can say what they like and choose to be anonymous, if they prefer. All notes are reviewed before being printed and sent to instructors.

      The Thank a Teacher project is a great way for students to express their gratitude for their instruction, and teachers at the University really appreciate hearing these unsolicited comments. The project has been around since around 1998.
