Program Roots

In fall 2019, L4L collaborated with The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice at Temple University to conduct the #RealCollege Survey at RIC. There were 681 students that participated in the survey. According to the survey results, 40% of respondents experienced food insecurity during the 30 days preceding the survey and within the previous year.

Get involved

Students can support with food drives, participate in hunger awareness events, and help advocate for the pantry.
