Hunger – an issue close to home

by Mary Sasso

Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program and Southern Maine Community College have recently established one such pantry on the SMCC Midcoast Campus. This pantry is open to all SMCC students and is replenished with roughly 500 pounds of food on a weekly basis. This will amount to about 21,000 meals a year — a small step towards closing the meal gap that college students face.
