Research about students at an urban serving university found that 32% of the students go hungry even with working full time and financial aid. In addition, 8% of the students are living in their cars or ‘couch surfing. This poster explores how community agencies serving homeless populations and an urban serving university are collaborating to address the needs of these marginalized students.
