• The crisis of food insecurity on college campuses

    LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y. (CBS)


    Thousands of students are collecting diplomas this month at college graduations around the country. But along with the celebrations is the reality that nearly half of the nation's students are going hungry.

    Jesse Delacruz is a psychology major at LaGuardia Community College. When he lost his job, he ran out of money for food, so he started to visit the school's free pantry.
