Montclair State identified student hunger as a serious issue in 2016. In 2016, Montclair State conducted a survey that confirmed anecdotal reports of students preoccupation related to hunger; and students distracted from their studies when the cost of subsistence was too high to sustain. These warning signs resulted in Montclair State taking formal steps toward hunger reduction by becoming NJ’s first four-year university to open a food pantry.
Additionally, various campus constituencies worked to raise money and design solutions in their areas of operation, resulting in the creation of more low- and no-cost dining options, an expanded food pantry, the Montclair State Campus Community Garden and more. The University continues to be committed to ending food insecurity and hunger at Montclair State.
