Food insecurity amongst today's college students has made national headlines and is becoming a more prominent topic. Often these students find themselves in the shadows and are left searching for resources and support in their communities. The reasons a student may be faced with food insecurity vary – from financial challenges, housing insecurity, to fleeing unsafe relationships or family situations – and it is important that universities realize these can be complex situations. Luckily, many instiutions are meeting this challenge head on by bringing the topic to the forefront: by establishing food pantries; working with dining services to provide accomodations; and working with local resources.

Led by a panel of higher education experts that intersect with these issues, this live briefing will explore best practices in how colleges and universities are addressing this issue systematically - from food pantries, housing assistance, to academic support. No student should ever feel like they are left behind, and we look forward to expanding this conversation to colleagues across the nation!
