As part of our Financial Capability Month series, Inceptia explores the growing epidemic of students going hungry on campus. Despite massive dining halls and excessive food buffets, an increasing number of college students lack access to the basic nourishment necessary to support their academic dreams. This epidemic is spreading from the smallest of community colleges to the largest of elite institutions, often a source of quiet shame for those students who suffer in silence. What can we, as campus communities, do to provide support so that no student goes hungry?

In this one hour webinar, we’ll discuss how food insecurity happens in such a food-rich environment, and how going hungry impacts every area of life for these students. Utilizing a body of growing research, we’ll look at how some institutions are working to tackle this problem head on. Finally, we’ll hear from one school on what it takes to open and run a campus food pantry, as they provide insights from their first year of operation.
