Grand Valley State University is committed to student success. We understand that student success can seem close to impossible without adequate access to basic needs. The campus community is committed to ensuring the success of our student population, and by helping to procure necessary care and assistance we hope to ensure Laker Wellness.

More than 1,000 Grand Valley students struggle with food insecurity each year. When students don’t have consistent access to enough quality food, it impacts them in the classroom and can derail their dream of earning a degree entirely.

This Giving Tuesday, November 29, the entire GVSU community is rallying around the Replenish Student Food Resource Fund to support students facing food insecurity. As Lakers, we help each other. This Giving Tuesday is no different. Let’s make sure all Grand Valley students have the nourishment they need to succeed. Visit the Giving Tuesday website to learn more and make your gift.
