Student support for a permanent food pantry on the University of Minnesota campus

This petition had 96 supporters


Food insecurity is a major issue in higher education. In a recent study conducted at the University of Minnesota, 10% of students reported being food insecure and 17.5% reported that they worried about their food running out before they had money to buy more. A student cannot be successful in their academics when they are worried about food security.

The Nutritious U Food Pantry will provide students with access to fresh and healthy food along with other resources to help them reach their full potential. Healthy food in college is not a "luxury"; it is a necessity.
