CU Boulder students going hungry: ‘This really is a problem’

by Cassa Niedringhaus

University of Colorado students are going hungry, but nobody is sure how many. University officials do not yet have an estimate, and local service providers see and serve students but do not track their numbers. They are in agreement, though: Food insecurity affects University of Colorado students, as it does college students around the country. The USDA defines food insecurity as “a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food.”
