Research & Practice

Equitable Food Security Policies in the U.S.

Students supported WashPIRG’s work to leverage the food policy system to address growing rates of student food insecurity by analyzing legislation from across the United States to synthesize possible campus hunger reduction frameworks. The team also participated in WashPIRG’s lobbying activities to contextualize their research, and produced 13 summaries for the organization and other stakeholders to consider, adapt, and apply to Washington’s food, student, and political landscapes.
