CHICO, Calif. – A program to fight food insecurity kicked off at Chico State on Thursday.

The fifth annual CalFresh day highlights the problem of students who can’t afford enough food or proper nutrition.

Students got to engage in a discussion about how to best support these basic needs and provide solutions for students going through this struggle.

“We’ve been doing CalFresh outreach on this campus for about five years and we’ve made so much progress in our campus culture,” Emily Foxworthy with CalFresh said. “It’s normal to come to use the food pantry, it’s normal to ask about Calfresh.”

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Butte Station, located between Plumas and Tehama Halls. There is also free food and seasoned fruit tastings.
