Central Michigan University Will Soon Offer A Student Food Pantry
A food pantry for students in need will soon open at Central Michigan University.
Organizers say the Student Food Pantry will work to alleviate the challenges and hardships of food insecurity that many CMU students encounter.
According to the organization, 55% of students with low food security show symptoms of depression.
The organizations says a lack of food can also affect grades, with chances of failing a class at 15 times the normal rate.
The food pantry aims to provide much needed support for students so they can remain enrolled and achieve a degree.
Right now, organizers are still putting the finishing touches on the pantry, but it is slated to have its first distribution on the 27th.
The pantry is open to all students facing food insecurity and you can find out more on CMU’s website.
