The Students in Need Group (SING) recently sponsored the third chili cook-off event at Garrett College. Winners were chosen in several categories, and were judged by more than 48 faculty, staff, and students. The event, a complimentary lunch hosted by SING, was a success and enjoyed by all in attendance.

"SING was proud to continue this Garrett College tradition with everyone at the college. It is our goal to create opportunities for dialogue surrounding food security on campus in creative and fun ways," stated Jacob Hannah, AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) member at Garrett College.

"This was a successful example of that. Strengthened by our new partnership with the Western Maryland Foodbank in Cumberland and the Shepherd of the Hills church in McHenry, SING aims to eradicate food insecurity for GC students, one plate at a time."
