In the Fall of 2017, CUFBA released a survey to our members for the CUFBA Implementation Study. The goals of the survey are to:
· Gain a better understanding of how campuses start and run food pantries
· Explore issues and challenges campuses face in starting and running food pantries
· Understand the reasons why campuses do not start food pantries
· Learn what other interventions campuses might be doing to address student food insecurity
We received responses from over 300 schools… THANK YOU to ALL who completed the survey in an effort to contribute to the study! All campuses that completed the survey were eligible to receive a $500 award for better serving students experiencing basic needs insecurities. An exciting CONGRATULATIONS goes out to University of Washington – Seattle & Wilson Community College, the two randomized award winners!
Results of the survey will be shared among members, will be operationalized into new resources for CUFBA members, and will be shared in a national report put out by the HOPE Center for College, Community, and Justice at Temple University in the near future.
