Along with tuition, there are a variety of costs associated with attending university. Many students will pay rent, require money for school supplies and textbooks, utilities, transportation, and more. When a student is running low on money, often times one of the first things to go is nutritious food.
Our belief is that a student should not have to sacrifice their physical or mental health or their academic performance to be able to access nutrition. We recognize that there are a variety of factors that may render a student unable to provide proper nutrition for themselves. If a student usually works 20 hour weeks to be able to pay rent and living expenses for the month, but has midterms coming up, they may be forced to decide between having enough time to study and working. If a student is experiencing poor mental or physical health, it may affect their ability to work and therefore their ability to provide necessities for themselves. If a student has recently established financial autonomy from parents/guardians, it may take some time to gather the funds to be able to maintain a sustainable lifestyle. The list is endless.
Regardless of the situation, everyone deserves to eat well. That’s why we’re here. If you’re unable to eat well, let us help. We’re here for you.
