Why join the Fight Against Campus Hunger?

Nearly one in four CUNY students experience food insecurity.

Not having enough to eat or having to worry about whether they can afford their next meal makes it harder for students to stay in school and to achieve their full academic potential.

In fact, many students will forgo textbook purchases for food—a statistic with troubling implications for academic success.

Every tax-deductible gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.

Why wait? Help us build momentum by donating today!&
