The goal of the Food for Thought initiative is to decrease food insecurity on campus by creating projects to assist students in accessing nutritious and satisfying meals. In addition to this, we hope to provide education on food insecurity and spread awareness on how it affects students. We also partner with organizations in our community to facilitate these food initiatives using our Food for Thought Fund Award. 

Did you know...

Food insecurity on our campus is an urgent situation, knowing that                   1 in 4 students on our campus face food scarcity. Currently, 19.2% of students (around 2,000 students) occasionally run out of food and cannot afford to buy more.  Another 7.5% experience food insecurity more often or all the time.
