Throughout my research project I have had many challenges but getting IRB approval has been the largest obstacle. The IRB has been the only thing in the way of my survey so getting is approved quickly is vital. Other than that, I think narrowing down the best practice to apply to the Huskie Food Pantry is the next biggest challenge. There are clearly many ways to go about how to run the food pantry but choosing a specific one that is going to be most effective here on NIU’s campus is most important. On the other hand, after meeting several people who need the aid of Food Pantries and Food Banks, I have realized how important this project really is. Everyone has been extremely kind and thankful and knowing that you’re appreciated is the most rewarding feeling, hands down.
