Penn State has received a $60,000 grant to address student hunger through the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s “Hunger-Free Campus” initiative.

The Hunger-Free Campus initiative is intended to advance student food security efforts across the state. The University received the title of “Hunger-Free Campus” in the fall semester, after which it was eligible to apply for the $60,000 grant.

The Student Care and Advocacy Office, Students United Against Poverty, and the Lion’s Pantry collaborated on the Hunger-Free Campus applications. These groups will continue working together to ensure that the grant is used to most effectively respond to food insecurity on campus.
