We are in the final weeks of the United Way Campaign and Ithaca College is at the 75% mark toward our goal of raising $60,000. Also, thanks to participation by many new contributors and generous increases in commitment from prior donors we are also very close to meeting the one-to-one match up to $5,000. We have two weeks to bring our campaign to successful conclusion and now is the time for action. Payroll deduction makes it really simple to have a big impact over the course of the year as even a gift of $1, $5, or up to $20 per paycheck can really add up and help those in need in our community. As a reminder, 100% of your gift to the United Way of Tompkins County and its member organizations will go to support needed services and not to administrative support of the local or national United Way.

Confused about how much food you should be eating? Registered Dietitian, Natalie Nicholas will be joining us from Longview to answer some of your portion distortion questions. Portion sizes have changed a lot in the last 20 years. “Small fries” are replaced by “medium fries”, small lattes are now “tall” or “grande”. You can purchase 64 ounces of soda all at once. While more food on the plate may seem great, portion sizes matter when it comes to our health and fitness.
Stop by the Portion Distortion table at Terraces Dining Hall and we’ll provide some answers! And, while you’re there, play the portion distortion game for a chance to win a Fitbit Flex!
