2. Campus or community projects, activities, or events:

This year we decided to focus on volunteering within the Twin Cities Community, fundraise for our chapter, and host on-campus health events. Volunteer-wise we hosted a cereal drive for Open Arms, MN which is an non-profit organization that provides meals for those who are too-ill to cook. We also hosted a Denim Drive that recycled denim for insulation, and we volunteered at Feed My Starving Children. Fundraising was successful through "That's My Pan" sales and a Baker's Square Pie fundraiser. On-campus, we were very successful in promoting health education. During national nutrition month we hosted a food-drive and informed students by tabling in public places and making informative bulletin boards. Also, for our big end of the year event we hosted a "Finals Stretch 5K" where students were able to decrease stress by being fit.

3. Tentative plans for next year

Our KON chapter hopes to continue service within the Twin Cities community. Possible areas of interest include: Feed My Starving Children, Cooking Matters, The Hope Lodge, and Open Arms MN. Collaboration with the Food Justice Coalition and other on-campus groups is looking to be explored. Our chapter is very interested in upholding next year's theme of "Social Justice." We hope to continue National Nutrition Month activities, fundraising, and the Final Stretch 5K.
