Policies to Support College Student Food Security: Legislative Fact Sheets

Students worked with WashPIRG to advance the creation and support of a bill to sustainably address college student food insecurity. The team created three legislative fact sheets highlighting the severity, urgency, and inequity of the current landscape of student food insecurity in King County, Washington state, and the United States as a whole.
