Missional Food Pantry Training and College Students.

Do you know that food insecurity in colleges and universities is worse than the general public?   A new nationwide study has released some startling findings on our college campuses.

The nationwide survey of college students found 45 percent reported being food insecure, meaning they have limited or uncertain access to food, in the past month.

At four year institutions, more than a third reported eating smaller meals, or skipping them altogether, because they didn’t have enough money.

Eight percent went an entire day without eating. – Study: Hunger, food insecurity rates among college students higher than rest of nation

That’s why 2 years ago, Faith, Hope and Love partnered with Paw’s Pantry at IUPUI to support their efforts in helping students with food insecurity as they attend college.

The following article introduced what their fledgling pantry had to offer then
