She was a member of a task force Chancellor Gary S. May appointed to help students struggling with food insecurity. Branson wanted to help find solutions and worked with faculty, staff and other students to address challenges of food access and affordability. Her task force advocated for better promotion of food and health literacy on campus and to increase supplies at The Pantry, the student-run food bank.
