College students can stretch food budgets
College students who are struggling with food and housing insecurity are encouraged to apply for a program that can help them stretch food budgets and eat healthier, Riverside County officials and student advocates said this week. Nearly 40,000 college students in Riverside County are now eligible for CalFresh. But officials say less than 10 percent of eligible students in the county have signed up. Hunger and food insecurity are widespread on college campuses and impact as many as one in three students, according to a survey by the California Student Aid Commission. Students who qualify for CalFresh receive a monthly benefit of $234. (INT)
