Combating College Student Hunger: Inland Empire Policy Roundtable

In the Community

Many college students across the Inland Empire and California face food insecurity, which can make it difficult to concentrate in class, stay healthy, and succeed academically. That is why the San Bernardino Community College District and California Student Aid Commission are hosting an event to combat this problem.

On April 21, the "Combating College Student Hunger: An Inland Empire Policy Roundtable" will bring together regional leaders to discuss partnerships and solutions to help college students access CalFresh

The event will include the participation of U.S. Senator Alex Padilla (via video), Assembly Majority Leader Eloise Gomez Reyes, the Office of Assemblymember Corey Jackson, and other policymakers.

Co-hosts include Cal State University, San Bernardino, the Community Action Partnership of Riverside County, the Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County, Riverside Community College District, and the University of California, Riverside.

Due to limited space, the event is by invitation only.
