The Campus Pantry

It’s a disturbing sign of the times–feeding hungry students.

The University of Georgia, Michigan State University, and the University of Arkansas are opening their food pantries to feed students because they can’t afford to feed themselves. With unemployed parents unable to assist, groups of students started pantries stocked by private donations in an effort to feed fellow students.

“This is one more scary manifestation of a broader economic, social and moral problem,” states Jim Weill, president of Food Research and Action Center (an anti-hunger group in Washington).
