College Tuition Causes Hunger Amongst Students

"A recent study of nearly 4,000 students in 12 states, released in October, found almost half of students faced some form of food insecurity in the last 30 days. The findings were worse for first generation college students and students of color, with more than half of each group reporting they experienced food insecurity.

The high cost of college, which has increased far more quickly than median family incomes, is taking a toll on students’ health, well-being, and success. According to a Fusion issues 2016 poll, 40% of 18 to 35-year-olds said they took out at least one loan to pay for school."
