The State University of New York has established a task force to focus on food security issues at its 64 campuses, including Cayuga Community College.
One of the main goals of the Food Insecurity Task Force is to support Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plan to combat student hunger on New York’s public college campuses. Cuomo unveiled the five-point plan as part of his annual State of the State agenda.
A key plank of Cuomo’s anti-hunger plan is requiring each SUNY and City University of New York campus to have a food pantry or an alternative method for providing meals to students who lack access to food.
