Helping Feed Hungry College Students

Dec 4, 2013 7:05 PM

Starving college student is not a term usually linked with success.

That’s why a group of Chico State students and employees recently started a food program to help feed hungry co-eds.

Called the Hungry Wildcats Food Drive, this program has been in the works for the past year and a half and officially started a few months ago.

This is how it works: students can receive food by talking with staff or faculty and telling them their situation.

Organizers say there is a correlation between proper nutrition and academic performance.

”We put so much time and energy into getting our education and making these good grades and being proud of where we came from and being proud of Chico State,” said Tracy Dudick of the CSU Community Legal Information Center. “I think this is another way for us to have that Wildcat pride.”
