Hunger & Homelessness Awareness

 The 2019 #RealCollege National Survey report surveyed over 86,000 students and found that 45% of respondents were food insecure in the prior 30 days. 56% of respondents were housing insecure in the previous year and 17% of respondents were homeless in the previous year. This is a big issue for college students, especially given the COVID-19 pandemic.

Florida PIRG is eager to inform FSU students about the resources that are available to them. Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is running from Nov. 15-22, this week! We have compiled a list of resources (below) that students can use if they are experiencing hunger or homelessness, or if they want to help food or housing insecure members of our community.
