Itasca Receives Hunger Free Campus Designation

December 16, 2020

During the 2019-2020 academic year, the Itasca Community College Student Senate led the college in an effort to become a hunger-free campus. This important designation means that the college is committed to ensuring that no student goes hungry. The Hunger Free Campus designation was awarded by the statewide student association, LeadMN. Itasca was one of 16 colleges in Minnesota that received the designation.

Factors that contributed to this achievement include: have an established food pantry on campus, provide information to students on food assistance programs in the community (such as SNAP), have an emergency assistance grant for students in need, establish a Hunger Task Force, and host an awareness event regarding food insecurity.

The Student Senate worked hard to meet all these goals. More information about the Hunger Free Campus campaign can be found here.

Food insecurity is a real problem for people everywhere. If you are an ICC student and you are experiencing food insecurity, please call or text 218-308-8570 to be connected to resources.
