Food insecurity is widespread on American college campuses. Students do not have enough food to feed themselves and sometimes their families as well. We created the College and University Food Bank Alliance (CUFBA) to provide support, training, and resources to campus-based food banks/pantries and other food-insecurity initiatives that primarily serve students.
This report demonstrates that significant financial, physical, and personnel resources are being invested in campus pantries. The CUFBA members who participated in this survey helped to shed needed light on the work involved in operating pantries and offered valuable insight into how to improve them. For that we are grateful.
