Food Resource Center
Nationwide, food insecurities have plagued college campuses and has impacted students, greatly! For three consecutive years, The Wisconsin HOPE Lab has conducted national surveys. Most recently in 2017, they surveyed 66 colleges and universities from 20 states, to include Washington D.C., making it evident that there is an issue surrounding food access and hunger.
In Spring 2018, the Division of Student Affairs conducted a survey of administration, faculty, staff, and student. Collectively, Morgan completed a total of 780 surveys with a strong agreement, of a combined response of about 96%, that a food resource is needed. The study has found that students are skipping meal, borrowing food or money, and eating food that is less preferred.
The Food Resource Center (FRC) aims to educate our MSU family on healthy strategies and methods such as couponing, food prep, nutritional value and proper food selection. Ultimately, focusing on the overall well-being of the individual through healthy eating habits and health promotion.
