Zero Hunger: CANR Student Success Fund

One in four students are currently facing food insecurity issues, and often our academic advisors are our first responders to students and the needs they have, both academically and personally. Far too often our students attend an advisor meeting and struggle through it — and their classes — which leads many of our advisors to ask that student “when was the last time you had a decent meal?”

You wouldn’t know that these students are facing hard times and struggling to put food on their tables, because they are so focused on the stresses of getting through college that they rarely speak up. This is a silent and faceless problem, but it is one that effects people you may know and interact with on a daily basis.

Give to the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) and help purchase meals for students who may be facing food insecurity issues.

Our goal of $5,000 will allow our college’s Office of Academic Student Affairs to purchase 645 meal vouchers and get them into our advisor’s hands, so that as they sit with our students, an unmarked, anonymous voucher can be given to the student to get a meal in one of the cafeterias on campus.

  • A gift of $7.75 will buy one meal voucher.
  • $38.75 provides five meal vouchers.
  • $77.50 provides 10 meal vouchers.
  • $155 provides 20 meal vouchers.
  • $232.50 provides 30 meal vouchers.

Remember, our goal of $5,000 will purchase 645 meal vouchers to help get us one step closer to “Zero Hunger” for our students!
