Food for Thought: Taking on Food Insecurity

WOODBURY'S NEW PROGRAM OFFERS HELP TO THOSE IN NEED

According to the USDA, roughly 1 in 7 Americans experiences food insecurity—a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. The negative impacts of food insecurity on both physical and emotional health are well documented and range from anemia and asthma to aggression and suicidal ideation.

At Woodbury University, we believe that no student should ever need to worry about where their next meal is coming from. That’s why we are pleased to introduce the Food for Thought program which provides meals to students who struggle with food insecurity. The program may provide as many as 5 free meals a week at a nearby eatery.

If you are struggling with food insecurity, please complete and submit the form below. All submissions are confidential.

Students struggling with any issues are encouraged to contact the CARE Team (email: CARETeam@woodbury.edu).

If you need additional assistance or would like to learn about the EBT program, please visit the California Department of Social Services website.
