We live in a nation with more than enough food, but the numbers of hungry people continue to rise, with some of the greatest jumps in the college student population. The government supports food programs in preschool through high school, but as soon as a student steps onto a college campus, in which they are paying for school for perhaps the first time, they are also needing to figure out sourcing of food amongst many other expenses. Unfortunately, food is the last thing a student may focus on after paying for rent, tuition and books. This lack of healthy food, then leads to a student without the brainpower to get through their studies and can lead to the difficult decision of dropping out. We can do better.
