Stop Student Hunger at Rutgers University 19
Each year on Giving Tuesday, millions of people around the world come together to give back to their favorite causes. This Giving Tuesday, November 27, you can fill a plate and feed a mind when you make a gift to Rutgers University food pantries.
Food insecurity has become increasingly prevalent on college campuses across the nation. Rutgers is no exception. Whether that means students skip meals because they are low on funds or they don't consume enough quality food, without access to nutritious meals, it’s difficult for students to thrive.
Rutgers seeks to create educational opportunities for students regardless of their economic background or income level. At Rutgers–New Brunswick, Rutgers–Camden, and Rutgers–Newark, students can find a meal and support at a university food pantry. Offering a comfortable and welcoming environment, the food pantries provide more than just groceries and toiletries. They connect students with resources around the university in order to take care of the physical and psychological demands associated with food insecurity.
On average, $40 covers one student’s food pantry visit, including a week’s worth of groceries and toiletries. When you make a gift, you support a mission to keep the pantry shelves stocked and student stomachs full.
Studying is hard. It’s even harder when you’re hungry. Make a gift to scrap student hunger today!
