The Massachusetts Hunger-Free Campus Coalition (HFCC) was formed in the fall of 2019 to address food insecurity among high-need populations enrolled in Massachusetts public colleges and universities. Our goal is to ensure equity and incorporate student voices as we work to make Massachusetts college campuses hunger free.

37% of public university students in Massachusetts are food insecure, and only 20% of food insecure students utilize Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. (Source)

S.822 and H.1368, sponsored by Senator Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester), Representative Andy Vargas (D-Haverhill), and Representative Mindy Domb (D-Amherst), would provide colleges the technical assistance and funding they need to address food insecurity on their campuses.
