“Social Media Round-Up” is an ‘ICYMI’ compilation of the top hunger-related news articles and other interesting tidbits posted on our social media profiles.


“While the University of California system has worked to bring in more first-generation and “non-traditional” students, helping them stay, succeed and meet basic needs like getting enough food requires greater investment.”

We’ve partnered with San Jose State University to provide food to hungry students on campus. More than 500 students received fresh fruit, vegetables, canned food and other groceries at Monday’s mobile pantry visit. To qualify for the free service, students must be a current SJSU student with an annual income below $23,540.

“Unfortunately, hunger and malnutrition are pervasive in Silicon Valley, even with the soaring economy. It’s the new hunger paradigm. As the economy grows, so does the number of people who need food.
