Food Insecurity on College Campuses
A recent study by The Kresge Foundation found that 1 in 3 community college students in the US face food insecurity and approximately 14% of community college students are homeless. In California, a 2016 study indicates almost 1 in 4 students enrolled at a California State University reported food insecurity and nearly 12% are homeless or reported housing displacement.
