Feeding America’s 2014 Hunger in America report estimates that roughly 10% of its 46.5 million adult clients are currently students, including about two million people who are attending school full-time. Nearly one-third of those surveyed—30.5%—report that they’ve had to choose between paying for food and covering educational expenses at some point in the last year. (via)
An increasing number of Food Recovery Network chapters are working to alleviate hunger not only in their communities-at-large, but in their campus communities as well.
