No Buckeye goes hungry
In 2014, a research group at Ohio State conducted a survey that determined 15 percent of undergraduate students—approximately 7,000—suffer from the effects of very low food security. This means that, on a frequent basis, these Buckeyes are unable to afford enough food to adequately feed themselves.
Not only were these students being forced to sustain themselves on a diet of things like Ramen noodles and hot dogs, but even with eating cheap, unhealthy food many still couldn't afford to adequately feed themselves. With continually ballooning costs of tuition, school supplies, housing, and other expenses, paying for food becomes a luxury to some students—rather than the necessity that it should be.
The Buckeye Food Alliance opened its doors in March 2016. We are a student-run organization that thrives because of the time, effort, and energy that all of its members put forth to ensure its success. Without the help from all of our various members, volunteers, and advisors, BFA would not be where it is today.
Giving a gift to the Buckeye Food Alliance will help us continue to fight food insecurity for our buckeyes here on campus. Whether you would like to give $5, $50, or $500, any amount goes a long way toward helping students in need.
