Food insecurity is a real issue that impacts one in two community college students in Minnesota. We are partnering with the national #RealCollege campaign to bring in policy experts to help us understand ways that we can address food insecurity on college campuses and develop action plans that are created from the ground up.

Students will:

  • Develop a campus-based action plan focusing on food insecurity
  • Learn about food insecurity and how higher education institutions can lessen the burden
  • Participate in a "Shark Tank" component to compete for grants to support their action plan.

Keynote Speaker:

Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab
A national leader in advocating for making public higher education free and addressing the basic needs of students.
