SDNA Shares a Meal

We share our cooking skills with others!


We enjoy getting together to participate in community events, service opportunities, and to share the joys of the season!

Campus Involvement

SDNA shares how to make healthy food choices, campus-wide!

Being healthy the Wildcat way.

The Student Dietetic & Nutrition Association (SDNA) at the University of Kentucky aims to develop and encourage students interested in the study of nutrition and dietetics. SDNA accomplishes this through social and professional contacts between students, faculty, and other nutrition and dietetics professionals. In addition, the organization regularly participates in University and community outreach projects. 

SDNA is involved on a national level with Universities Fighting World Hunger (UFWH).  Every Spring, UFWH hosts a Summit that provides students the opportunity to expand their horizons and learn about hunger, food waste, sustainability, and social justice.  SDNA members who are interested in attending the 2018 UFWH Summit should contact Amanda Hege, Director of Community Outreach, at  

To serve the Big Blue Nation, we focus on outreach through campus events and the Big Blue Pantry. We are also involved in the Lexington area with God's Pantry Food Bank, the Ronald McDonald House, Seedleaf and many other organizations. We partner with God's Pantry to host meal packaging events, where we packed over 100,000 meals for distribution to Lexington families.
