With the mission of leading the fight on campus against student food insecurities, our guiding principles include but are not limited to: linking students to additional resources (internally & externally), empowering students to make choices, and helping to remove barriers to retention.
We assessed need, assessed current resources, identified the gap to support students, determined space and staffing considerations, explored free/grant funded/community resources, and opportunities for fundraising .
