2. Campus or community projects, activities, or events:
2. October 24, 2014- Initiation- We had our initiation ceremony along with a short meeting in which we discussed the Seed2Need event that had already occurred and the upcoming Ronald McDonald event.

4. February 4, 2015- Spring Semester- We discussed who would be the volunteer event leader for our Meals on Wheels event. We also discussed the plan for our Spring bake sale that we held on April 6th.
5. April 22, 2015 - New Officer Meeting- This meeting was held for the new officers for the 2015-2016 school year. All officers (old and new) discussed responsibilities and expectations for our chapter, along with the tentative plan for next year.
During this past year our Chapter participated in many community based activities. The first semester of the year our Kappa Pi harvested over 618 pounds of food from a local farm that gives all of it's produce to food pantries. We also volunteered at a local food bank named Road Runner Food Bank. Here we distributed produced and packaged foods into boxes which later were delivered by the nonprofit. Another activity we participated in was cooking dinner for sixty people at our local Ronald McDonald House. To end the semester we participated in a community based activity held by the University of New Mexico every year called Hanging of the Greens. During this event we decorated our assigned area of the campus so that the community could come and enjoy the campus for the holidays. During the Spring semester our chapter helped to clean the kitchen for our local Meals on Wheels kitchen. Finally, an activity that we participated in all year was collecting box tops for education. Our chapter delivered all that we had collected throughout the year to Atrisco Elementary School.
3. Tentative plans for next year
The tentative plan for next year is to continue and participate in local hunger programs like that ones that we volunteered with this year. We want to help places like Road Runner Food Bank, Meals on Wheel and Seed2Need gardens because food insecurity is such a big issue within our community. We also plan to partake in decorating the campus again for Hanging of the Greens so that our community can enjoy a festive campus environment.
