Public colleges confront student hunger, housing needs over summer

by Scott O’Connell

In Massachusetts, local public colleges and universities are ramping up efforts to provide safety net programs to students over the summer break. This year, all four public colleges in Central Massachusetts have launched or plan to launch new on-campus food pantries as a stopgap measure to help students struggling to find meals. Those schools also have introduced or tried to better publicize existing programs aimed at students dealing with hunger, homelessness, or other issues between semesters.
