Bring Eat Better 4 Less to Your Campus – Although anyone can utilize the resources on, if you want to activate your campus, there are many additional ways to engage your students, partners, and community members to bring the movement to life. Carmen Shurtleff, a social work instructor at Northeast Texas Community College (NTCC) built and pioneered the Eat Better 4 Less program on her campus in 2020. She experimented with different outreach and activation events to reach students and community members. With the help of her social work students, interns and community partners, Carmen ran dozens of events and demonstrations to expose students to skills or tools that could help them address their needs. Carmen has built a CARE Center on campus, for which Eat Better 4 Less is just one component of a holistic approach to student wellness. She is currently working with the League for Innovation at the Community College to share lessons learned and expand this program to other colleges.
