HELP US TAKE OUR FIGHT TO END HUNGER ON CAMPUS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

  LINE.jpg

California is standing at the forefront of addressing college student hunger on its campuses. 

 Assembly Bill 453 and Bill 214 will support and incentivize universities and colleges to launch programs on campus such as: Swipe Out Hunger, CalFresh (aka food stamps), food pantries, and additional administrative help, such as support with signing up for CalFresh.

    When a young person makes the decision to spend money on investing in their future, it should not be at the expense of their present health and well-being. Brains and bodies need to be fed — both with food and with knowledge – to be able to grow and reach one’s potential. This is not only humane for the individual, but it benefits our whole society.

    As a student (and former teacher), I know how hard life would be without access to food. We need Swipe Out Hunger and other organizations like it to help end hunger!

    There are tens of thousands of California college students hustling through their studies with empty stomachs. A 2016 study showed that 53% of food insecure students skip class or study group because of their hunger. If the bill is signed, we’ll be able to give these students access to warm, healthy dining hall meals. With 1 in 4 students regularly skipping meals, the impact on our communities will be huge.

    When students are hungry, they can’t focus on learning. With so much abundance, surely there’s more than enough resources to resolve food insecurity for college students!

    Food insecurity is real and a very troubling issue to many college students. We should be doing much more to eliminate food insecurity.

    No young person should have to skip meals, nor should the education of our future generation be jeopardized by food insecurity.
