College Hunger By The Numbers

With an increasing number of non-traditional students, including parents who’ve returned to school, first-generation students and those who are working full-time while attending college, the need for food assistance is also growing, with at least 34 percent of college students across the U.S. reporting that they face hunger, according to an NCES study. Food insecurity can harm a student’s ability to reach their educational and professional goals. The North Texas Food Bank is working to close the hunger gap among students.
