Food Scholarships in Houston

Can “Food Scholarships” – allocations of groceries to undergraduates- reduce food insecurity, improve financial wellbeing, and boost academic achievement? This study considers program implementation and impact of one of the nation’s first food scholarship programs: the Houston Food Scholarship (HFS), a partnership between Houston Community College and the Houston Food Bank.

This effort is supported by The Kresge Foundation and the William T. Grant Foundation. Check out our latest report on the program, issued in January 2020.

We are grateful to funding from The Kresge Foundation and The William T. Grant Foundation for making this work possible
