Student Nutrition Advocacy Collaborative (SNAC)

Do you grab fast food on the way to class? Fill your freezer with boxed meals because you don’t have time to cook? Talk to us. We’ll show you ways to eat healthy—even on a student budget. SNAC is a group of junior, senior and graduate nutrition students. We know food, we love food. Let’s talk.

We’d love to speak to your campus group—large or small. We’re happy to suggest topics, or speak on one you already have in mind. Popular topics include general nutrition, eating disorders, and sports medicine.

To request a SNAC speaker, email snac@umn.edu. Include your name, telephone number, date, time and place of event and some info about your audience.
