Colleges fight hunger, fill basic needs to keep students in school

Cleveland State University used a grant to open up Lift Up Vikes! Resource Center and Food Pantry on campus where students in need can get groceries, including fresh produce and canned goods. Many CSU students faced food insecurity during COVID-19 shutdowns after being laid off and the university aims to help with day-to-day needs in order to keep students enrolled. Due to pandemic-related restrictions, students register online and then pick up bags of groceries at the pantry with only a limited number of people allowed to visit the food pantry at one time.
