Food insecurity has been called "the hidden crisis on college campuses.” Millions of college students --including students at some of the country's most prestigious colleges-- say that they either don't get enough to eat or don't know where their next meal is coming from. In this episode we discuss how food insecurity affects studying and graduation rates, what is being done and what can be done in the future to support these students on our own CUNY campuses and nationwide.
