Food insecurity at St. John's University is a hidden challenge that has grave consequences for our students. Access to scholarship support, books, technology, and faculty is only a portion of the challenge for many of them. In a recent University survey, one in eight St. John's students responded that they often or always went hungry because of an inability to pay for food. These students find themselves at a crossroads as they make a choice between short term health and security, and long term success and opportunity for change.  

St. John's has allocated $100,000 of University money to help with addressing this need and a major donor has committed to establish an endowed fund that will provide a level of permanent, ongoing support—but the level of need is greater than those resources alone can address. In real numbers, one in eight students represents almost 2,500 hungry individuals every day.  

St. John's is addressing this through the Office of Campus Ministry and Student Affairs.  After students are evaluated for need, meals are transferred to the student’s Storm Card.  

With the holiday season just around the corner, what better way to celebrate than by covering the cost of meals to help ensure that St. John's students can complete their education, fulfilling their dreams and the Vincentian mission. 

Make a gift today of $9 to cover a meal, $27 to cover a day of meals, or $189 for a week of meals. Every gift, no matter the amount makes a difference!
