A New Approach Addresses Hunger in Higher Education
WTTW’s Brandis Friedman reports on the food pantries on City Colleges of Chicago campuses. For students who struggle to balance busy schedules and low wages, these food distributions provide a convenient option for accessing nutritious food.
“The fact that we need food pantries inside of City Colleges is actually a sobering reflection about the need all across our community. We know that the face of hunger is changing,” said Kate Maehr, Executive Director and CEO of the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
