Straight from print: Students battle hunger at AU

This article originally appeared in The Eagle’s December 9 special edition. Students, faculty and student organizations are joining forces to work to create a potential food pantry at AU for students who suffer from food insecurity. Food insecurity is not limited to those who may go years without access to reliable food sources— sometimes it just means not knowing where your next meal will come from for a semester, month or even just in the next week.
