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.

Welcome to Replenish the GVSU on campus student resource.  While the Center for Women & Gender Equity is proud to have been home to the pantry since its inception in 2009, our staff could not be more thrilled to announce that Replenish has its own independent space in Kirkhof 0074.

Replenish is the newly improved food resource for all students who face financial obligations/struggles that compromise their food access.

Replenish, provides food and personal care items to meet the short-term challenges that students may face when unable to purchase such items.  Obtaining an adequate food supply is often a major component of financial stress and research has proven that inadequate nutrition decreases academic performance.
