Jennifer Medina, The New York Times
A 2016 study found that roughly four in 10 students in the University of California system went hungry at least some of the time.
The University of California, Irvine is approaching the challenge with its Basic Needs Hub, a food pantry that helps anyone on campus who needs something to eat. To lessen the stigma of asking for help, students are not required to show proof of income to access the pantry.
