The purpose was to bring awareness of the Nutrition and Family and Consumer Science profession to middle school aged kids. The KON members then evaluated the curriculum after implementation and submitted a report to KON in response the award focusing on the Kids Career.
The Alpha Alpha chapter received the award and wanted to use it to give back to the community. They decided to put on an event for the older sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary that reside in an assisted living facility on the university campus. Many of the sisters were retired professors from the university and some where connected to the Family and Consumer Science/Nutrition and Dietetics department. The event went very well.
