That truck is headed to the nearest college to feed the starving college kids-has to be a big prank by a fratenity. Funny, funny story. I just moved from Fayette County and can absolutely believe ths story.
More than one third of college students in the U.S. say they don't have enough money for food, with some even going whole days without eating as they simply cannot afford meals, according to a report.
The study, Still Hungry and Homeless in College, found 36 percent of university students said they had been food insecure over the past 30 days, meaning they were not eating healthy, nutritious food or even had the ability to “acquire such foods in a socially acceptable manner.”
The research also found that around one quarter of university students said they have skipped meals or cut the size of their portions because they couldn’t afford to eat properly, with 18 percent being forced to do so on at least three occasions in the last 30 days.
The report, conducted by researchers at Temple University and the Wisconsin HOPE Lab, also shows the number of hungry students expands even further when including community colleges.
