Soaring food costs have college students feeling the pinch. The need is especially great at Milwaukee Area Technical College and its Walker's Square campus, located on the near south side in the heart of Milwaukee’s Latino community. Many students at the campus are enrolled in the GED or English as a Second Language programs while working minimum wage jobs that don't provide enough to cover rent, gas, groceries, and other expenses. Food pantries on all five MATC campuses and a formal partnership with Feeding America plan to help.
