Food for Thought: Broward College pantry helps students dealing with food insecurity
A student can have a hunger for learning, but it will only go so far if they’re not receiving proper nutrition. That’s why Broward College has made solving food insecurity part of its catalog of services available to students.
Because no one should go hungry: This campaign aims to solve food insecurity for kids in South Florida
The thought of one child in the United States going to bed hungry every night is heartbreaking. And unfortunately, it’s not happening to just one child. Millions of children suffer from food insecurity.
Food For Thought campaign begins in Lauderhill
LAUDERHILL, Fla. – September is Hunger Action Month. It’s a time when people all across the nation take a stand against hunger. WPLG Local 10 News partnered with Publix Supermarkets to help families in South Florida who are in need during the coronavirus pandemic. The team’s Food For Thought campaign events began on Friday at Castle Hill Elementary School in Lauderhill.

Local 10, Publix team up for Food For Thought
Children are waking up in millions of U.S. homes without access to nutritious food. This means they do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable nutritious food. WPLG-Local 10 and Publix Super Markets are teaming up to address this growing crisis. Through Food For Thought, we are raising awareness about the plight of hunger affecting our schools, neighborhoods and communities.
