Many College Students Are Too Poor to Eat
Adam Harris, The Atlantic
Food insecurity is a growing college-completion issue on campuses across the United States. But no one can agree on the exact scale of the problem. Now lawmakers are introducing a bill to change that.
The new bill, called the Closing the College Hunger Gap Act, would require federal data collection on food and housing insecurity. According to the bill's sponsors, the goal is to produce a real, consistent national window on where student hunger is happening, where it's the worst, and which schools are creating interventions that make a difference.
