Survey reveals food insecurity issues
Between May 1-10, UC Davis students raised $822 for the campus Pantry by submitting UCUES! Thank you for your time and help.
To raise awareness of food issues at UC Davis, UCUES partnered with the Pantry. Budget & Institutional Analysis donated $1.00 to the Pantry for every UCUES submitted.
In the last few years, the media have shed more light on food insecurity in the U.S. College campuses have seen increasing levels of food insecurity. To understand the prevalence on UC campuses, UCUES asks students how often they skip meals to save money and worry about having enough food.
Although the percentage of UC Davis students skipping meals for financial reasons fell in 2016, the survey still revealed that over 20% of respondents skipped meals “somewhat often” or more frequently. UCUES helps the campus understand students' needs and monitor trends.
The Pantry campaign was just one of the ways you can make a difference and help UC Davis students! Your answers drive action on campus, and every voice matters.
