Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges have long been filling the minds of students with knowledge. Now they are looking to help fill their stomachs as well, and are seeking the public’s help.
Studies, including a survey of the two colleges, have shown that food insecurity among college students is a significant problem, so the campuses are both setting up food pantries to help needy students. Cuyamaca College’s Harvest Pantry started Aug. 21, the first day of the fall semester. Grossmont College’s Gizmo Kitchen kicked off Aug. 25, with a noon-2 p.m. grand opening in Griffin Gate in the student center.
