Do University of Minnesota students need a food shelf?

From Minnesota Public Radio News:

Twenty-two percent (of U students) responded that they feared they'd run out of food before they had money to buy more.

Family Pathways runs nine food shelves in the Twin Cities. Director of Basic Life Services Kathy Wills isn't surprised by the student response, given that some students are already balancing tuition costs, rent and books.

"Food is maybe an issue that they do try and stretch, like adults who don't have enough money will feed their children at home first and not eat themselves," she said.

Christensen says the campus may need a food shelf.

The survey also found that nearly one-third of U students had experienced a sexual assault.
