Food insecurity is the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient amount of affordable, nutritious food.1
Student Success recognizes that food insecurity is important to one’s mental health. Financial constraints due to rising grocery costs, living expenses, and educational costs all contribute to food insecurity.
Basics: The Wellness Passport is an introduction to the importance of participating in 8 dimensions of wellness. Your wellness health can help you achieve feelings of balance, enhance your connection to others and ensure you are ready to meet life’s challenges. Each of the Wellness Journeys have several fun and interesting challenges and tasks to improve your personal wellness.
Every time you complete a challenge within each journey, place a check mark or date next to the challenge and also place a date into one of the wellness stamps on the page date next to it - it’s that simple. The stamps represent the achievement you have made within each of your Wellness Journeys.
