Can't focus with that stomach growling? No worries, we've got you covered.  Not only do we have a little sweet (candy) and a little savory (granola bars) -- but we've got both… for free! While a little sugar never hurt anyone, the Health Ninjas will have plenty of fruit as well to help feed that sweet tooth, all distributed throughout the IMU (everyone's study spot and snack plug).
