Before college, there was never a recipe that Matt Wang wouldn’t try. Introduction to Human Nutrition, a class in Carolina’s Gillings School of Global Public Health, showed Matt that food was more than fun — it was a tool for change.
Now, the public health major spends his Saturdays at Hope Gardens, a student-run non-profit, growing fruits and vegetables so that more people have access to healthy food. After he graduates, he wants to write policies that connect kids with locally-grown produce.
I’m passionate about making public school lunches more nutritious and environmentally sustainable.
