The Hidden Hunger on College Campuses - Laura McKenna, the Atlantic

Recent research on hunger at colleges opens serious questions about those assumptions. Sara Goldrick-Rab, a professor of education policy and sociology at University of Wisconsin, last year surveyed 4,000 students at 10 community colleges across the country, including Delgado Community College in Louisiana, Essex County College in New Jersey, and Western Wyoming Community College. Her study, published in December, suggests that more than half of all community-college students struggle with food insecurity. http://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2016/01/the-hidden-hunger-on-college-campuses/424047/
