SAN DIEGO, CA – The San Diego Community College District announced Tuesday it received a nearly $100,000 state grant to assist students facing food insecurity at City, Mesa and Miramar colleges.
The funds will be used to bolster the colleges’ on-campus food pantries, which each week provide emergency food to hundreds of students who would otherwise go hungry. The grants come from a $2.5 million fund administered by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office aimed at fighting student hunger.
