Cougs Feeding Cougs 

 

 

At any given moment in time, there are a number of WSU students who are concerned about where their next meal will come from. It is estimated that nearly half of all college students in the U.S. are insecure about reliable access to food, especially affordable and nutritious food.*

If you are a WSU student concerned about where you will get your next meal, Cougs Feeding Cougs will provide funds to eligible students that can be used anonymously in WSU Dining Services locations. There are a few details students should read to learn more about the program.

The prevalence of food insecurity with WSU students has prompted the ASWSU Senate to adopt a resolution in support of food insecurity solutions in the Pullman community.  See ASWSU Resolution R46-13.
