HUNGRY ON CAMPUS

Food insecurity, while previously noted as an unconventional topic in higher education, is becoming a more popular conversation with regards to student success.   In fact in 2016 the College University Food Bank Alliance, along with, the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness, the Student Government Resource Center, and the Student Public Interest Research Groups published a 47page document summarizing the state of hungry students and the implications it has on persistence. Some have even called the report, Hunger On Campus: The Challenge of Food Insecurity for College Students, a call to action, noting that student hunger must be a campus wide imperative.
