Chico: Fighting Hunger on and off Campus

Chico

CSU Chico is tackling food insecurity with an innovative collaboration between students and faculty, in which The Center for Healthy Communities (CHC) CalFresh Outreach program draws social work, health science, and nutrition and food science students to help reduce food insecurity among both students and community members. CHC's student teams led campus events, one enrolling over 200 Chico State students in CalFresh (formerly known as food stamps). One team member said, “CalFresh Outreach put me on the front lines of helping students experiencing hunger. Some have come up to me on campus to let me know that they are now able to buy groceries.”
