Dear Ms. Gordon:
As a student at Central Community College, the professor of my Global Health class has presented us with the option of participating in a service learning project. I was very pleased to learn of your organizations strong focus in nutrition, as I am currently in the process of finishing my prerequisites for transfer to Bastyr University, in pursuit of a degree in dietetics.

We now have implemented a communal fruit bowl in place of the candy. It has become a great gateway into taking necessary steps toward creating a stronger sense of health in my workplace. I also possess a solid belief in leading by example, and have converted my once sitting desk into a standing desk to avoid a sedentary lifestyle. Many co-workers now...
