Open Door Project

Combating Food Insecurity


November 9, 2018 -
10:00am to 11:30am


Food, housing, and wellness security are all essential in ensuring that our students are mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy as well as successful in their studies. And yet a 2018 survey conducted by researchers at Temple University and the Wisconsin HOPE Lab indicated that 36 percent of college students say they are food insecure.

How can the University community compassionately respond to students who are unable to meet their basic needs?

This session is presented by Pitt's Sustainability Program Assistant, Ciara Stehley and Dietrich School undergraduate Brooke McEvoy.
