Opinion: Food-insecure students are left to fend for themselves during spring break

(04/28/23 12:00pm)

Students often use spring break as an opportunity to travel or rest. However, at American University, those who cannot afford to leave campus face a reality far from adventure or relaxation. First-generation students are more likely to stay on campus over breaks, as they face greater degrees of financial instability and have less income to travel. The University leaves these on-campus students vulnerable to food insecurity over the week-long break as its meal plans become almost entirely unusable with no adequate alternatives.
