A Conversation with the White House about Food Insecurity on Campuses

By Anna Galaktionov

While difficult to grasp, food security is a probing issue on many college and university campuses in the U.S, especially in the southeastern states.

Subsequently, the White House has acted to relieve said issue by discussing possible solutions with representatives from campuses and leaders nationwide.

In Florida, Senator Marco Rubio began the conversation about campus food insecurity last year with over 50 leaders and partners from across the state. On Oct. 21, the White House will host a forum at 5 p.m. EST via Zoom.

Amanda Gonzalez Garcia, student leader at Barry University, founder of Hunger to Action, and staff writer at The Buccaneer, will be one of three college student representatives charged with speaking to White House officials about ways to assist with program efforts.

She invites anyone interested to attend. Registration is required.
