The Cal State University Chancellor's office is working to better understand the challenges its students face when it comes to affording housing, and meals.

They're encouraging other campuses to use Chico State's ‘Hungry Wildcat Food Pantry' as a model for helping students having trouble meeting food costs.

Currently, no data is available for officials to see how many students are affected with food and housing in securities. Student and staff who work at the food pantry say every semester more and more students visit the food pantry.

"This semester the food pantry took off a lot of people have been finding out about us...this semester along we have out 60 students," Jessica Leila Castillo said

Chico State officials say they are no restriction as to the number of visits a student can utilize the pantry.If you would like to donate to the Hungry Wildcat Food Pantry you can contact the Office of Vice President of Student Affairs at 530-898-6131.
