Cooking for CASPAR

The Technology and Policy Student Society (TPSS) is made up of students from the Technology and Policy Program (TPP) at MIT. As a group of students interested in issues ranging from the local to federal to global levels, it is important for us to engage with and try to better understand the communities we live and work in. It is all too easy to get stuck in the "bubble" of academia while at MIT and never have the opportunity to interact with neighbors who live different lives than us. With the generous funding from the Community Service Fund (CSF), nine TPP students shopped for food, cooked a healthy meal, and served it to the residents of the CASPAR shelter. CASPAR is a shelter a few doors down from MIT grad housing. It serves the Cambridge population struggling with substance abuse and homelessness.
