Hungry, Homeless and in College – The New York Times

How many markets are doing outreach to their community colleges?

According to a survey on economic insecurity among community college students released last year by the Wisconsin HOPE Lab, one in five students went hungry in the last 30 days due to lack of money and 13 percent were homeless in the last year, despite most of these students having financial aid and jobs.

More than 10.5 million students attend community colleges.
