Monroe Community College on Wednesday will sponsor and host a SUNY-wide conference on student food insecurity.
More than 150 people are expected to attend, including campus and community stakeholders along with leaders in the field and the SUNY Food Insecurity Task Force.
MCC President Ann Kress is a task force co-chair. After participating in a study back in 2016, MCC has established a resource committee to help students.
The school has adopted a universal bus pass program, in addition to placing food pantries on every campus.
A program called DWIGHT, Doing What is Good and Healthy Together, takes away some of the stigma of food insecurity by offering students a discreet way to ask for help.
The college hopes to share some of those solutions during the conference, which takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Brighton Campus.
