Q: What is food insecurity?
A: Uncertain availability of affordable, nutritious food.
“Students can encounter a variety of roadblocks including homelessness and food insecurity. Recent studies revealed 41% of students on CSU campuses face food insecurity.” -California State University, Long Beach
Donations made to Community FoodBank benefit our local students who seek food assistance. Students at local community colleges we’re all familiar with (Gavilan, Hartnell, Monterey Peninsula, Cabrillo) plus the California State Universities in our region (CSU Monterey Bay, San Jose State) have students who live in San Benito County.
