Community Food Security Club

Purpose

1 in 6 Americans faces hunger. Penn State’s Community Food Security Club (CFS) is committed to raising awareness of the hunger and food insecurity faced by 50 million Americans. Through educational campaigns concerning the existing barriers to eating nutritious, locally-produced food and community service projects, we aim to spread conscious eating habits to the Penn State and State College communities, assist in the support of a local food system, and support those facing food insecurity.
