Cal Fresh Day
CSUN is one of 40 California University or college campuses participating in the CalFresh Outreach grant contract through the Center for Healthy Communities (CHC) at Chico State to fund outreach and application assistance efforts targeting students. CalFresh is a nutrition assistance program that helps low-income individuals and families buy the food they need. CalFresh is the California name of the USDA-funded Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

The CalFresh Outreach (CFO) program at CSUN offers application assistance for potentially eligible students. Potentially eligible students include those who work 20 hours per week, those who participate in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), those who are receiving Cal Grant A or B, those who are awarded work-study dollars as part of their financial aid package, and others! The CFO program staff can individually assist students to overcome the three main hurdles to receiving CalFresh benefits: the application, the interview, and submitting verifications. Additionally, the CFO staff are trained to communicate with the county department office to advocate on behalf of the student and their application if in question.

Earth Fair: Trashpocolypse 
April 11th, 10-3 PM, Bayramian Lawn
Earth Fair is an annual event hosted by Associated Student Productions that celebrate Earth Day. The ultimate goal of Earth Fair is to educate students in interactive and innovative ways about how to sustain and care for our planet Earth. Each year the theme is changed to capture attention and focus the event on the prominent environmental issues facing our society. The largest component of Earth Fair is the 30 to 40 on-campus, local, and outside vendors that are relevant to the Earth Fair theme and impact student learning. Local and outside vendors show students that goods and services that consumers buy everyday can be bought from companies that have less of a carbon footprint. CSUN departments and auxiliaries provide students the opportunity to learn about the sustainable developments the campus has implemented in day to day activities.
