Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger
Fresno State is a leading university of the San Joaquin Valley, one of the world's most productive agricultural regions, and Fresno State's Jordan School of Agricultural Science and Technology is one of the finest agricultural schools anywhere. No one should go hungry in this bountiful region. Fresno State is committed to fighting food insecurity for its students, especially students who are unhoused, are first-generation students or are members of underserved communities.
Fresno State Anti-Hunger Initiatives
The Fresno State Food Security Project was launched in 2014 to support students who may be experiencing food insecurity or other challenges that could inhibit their academic success. Initiatives included in the Project are the Amendola Family Student Cupboard, CalFresh nutrition assistance program application assistance, and nutrition education and budgeting workshops. The Student Cupboard is a free food and hygiene pantry (including diapers) for current Fresno State students and is funded by monetary as well as food and hygiene donations.
