Hunger is a wicked problem facing much of the globe today: one in six Americans do not know where their next meal will come from. Plymouth State is not immune to this issue, and many of our students experience food insecurity. Learn more about the magnitude of this issue and what the Student Support Foundation and First-Year Seminar classes are doing to address it by solving the systemic causes of hunger.

Another Look at Food Insecurity
Kady Hoffman ’21, first-year student from Sherman, Connecticut, took a different approach as her First-Year Seminar class that addressed the wicked problem of hunger. Hoffman focused on food waste at a local level, studying at D Acres Permaculture Farm & Educational Homestead in Dorchester, New Hampshire with hopes that her work will highlight the possibilities that food waste holds as a resource.
