Reducing hunger, homelessness is focus of University effort

Pop up Pantry A 2018 California State University (CSU) study revealed that 47 percent of Sacramento State students struggle with food insecurity and nearly 13 percent have experienced homelessness at least once while in college. Sacramento State has a safety net for these students, offering some of the most comprehensive basic-needs programs and services in the CSU system.

Activities during Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week, running Nov. 10-19 at Sac State, are meant to educate struggling students about the support available on campus and in the community.

“We hope that students will take advantage of the variety of opportunities to connect with resources, and that they know we care about them and their well-being,” says case manager Danielle Muñoz. “Our campus is invested in ensuring that students have their basic needs met so that they are better able to focus on their studies.”
