Food Insecurity Accordion

Are you frequently hungry with no money to buy food? Food insecurity can be defined as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy lifestyle.

This can lead to poorer general health and higher levels of depression, anxiety, distress, anger, and loneliness. In addition, it can negatively impact student performance in school.

Artie’s FIT Market was established to help hungry SCC students create greater food security, improve health, and support them in their academic pursuits.
