Food Security for Redbirds
At the root of student success is having basic needs met. Sometimes circumstances change quickly, and students find themselves in need of temporary help.
Together, let’s ensure Redbirds can focus on their academic goals without worrying about where to get their next meal or how to afford other expenses that are necessary and foundational to being a student (textbooks, clothing, technology, etc.).
40% of College Students Don't Have Enough Food!
Did you know?
National studies have shown that approximately 40% of college students experience food insecurity – the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods. Studies at Illinois State have revealed similar percentages. Many ISU students live off-campus and find that food is the most expendable item when they have limited funds and must prioritize expenses like rent, utilities, tuition, fees, etc.
