Funding towards increasing hours for our Wellness Dietitian


The impact of nutrition and healthy eating on a college campus is threefold, affecting academic, emotional and physical performance. Healthy Ospreys Eat Well campaign focuses on creating a healthy university environment that promotes healthy eating habits and provides a variety of choices for a wholesome diet. This campaign will not be successful without our on campus Registered Dietitian.

The Campus Dietitian is a food and nutrition expert, Yemila Lowery, at the University of North Florida is for nutrition counseling for all UNF students. Whether they’re are interested in a one-time meeting or multiple sessions, an individualized plan can be developed.

The campus dietitian is a resource to help students reach their healthiest potential with good nutrition, from nutrition basics, food allergies or intolerances, weight loss, eating disorders and nutrition for athletes.

Funding will go towards seeds, and supplies for the garden.


The Fredrick and Ophelia Tate Ogier Gardens is the epicenter of innovative environmental and public health programming.  Located on an acre, these organic gardens feature row crops, a wide variety of fruit trees, raised vegetable beds and peaceful sitting areas for students to relax. Produce cultivated by student staff and volunteers is sold to UNF’s Osprey Cafe and are given away to students and volunteers. Students can “Adopt-A-Bed” and have the opportunity to experiment growing their own food at no additional cost.
