Toreros Against Hunger

Get Well Meals

If you are ill, or injured, and unable to make it to one of the campus dining locations, you may be able to get food to go from Pavilion Dining (SLP).

First, you will need to contact your Resident Assistant and/or Community Director or call Residential Life at (619) 260-4777. They will then contact Dining to make arrangements to provide you with a healthy meal.  


Manage Stress

Eat Well! Stress levels and a proper diet are closely related. However, when we are stressed we forget to eat well and resort to cookies, ice cream and chips because they are easy and taste so good. Try to avoid those snacks and replace with fruits, vegetables and fish. Fish with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids have been show to reduce the symptoms of stress. A tuna sandwich really is brain food!

Visit the USD Wellness Center for additional tips on managing one's mental health and stress.
