More than half the students attending a California community college have trouble affording balanced meals or worry about running out of food, and nearly 1 in 5 are either homeless or do not have a stable place to live, according to a survey by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office.
The study found a strong correlation between food and academic success. For example, students having trouble affording a meal had grades at a C or below at a higher rate than students who did not experience food insecurity.
The food pantries of the Yuba Community College District provide more than 1,600 meals per month to students.
