Gov. Wolf announced $1 million grant to help address college food insecurity

Tuesday, February 08, 2022

Pennsylvania’s governor announced $1 million to help establish a program to support the state’s Hunger-Free Campus Initiative, which combats food insecurity at postsecondary institutions. The administration said an estimated 36% of students know someone who has dropped out of college due to food insecurity during the pandemic. Additionally, 52% of students who faced food or housing insecurity in 2020 did not apply for support because they did not know how or that they’d be eligible.
