Food Insecurity and Inequality in the Classroom

Sean Galvin (LaGuardia Community College)

This research, begun in 2020 under COVID-19 conditions and brought through to the present, was part of a college-wide effort. A small group of professors, drawn from different disciplines, explored and created approaches to introducing these topics to college students to increase their awareness and to invite them to become more involved including: organizing food drives; volunteering at food pantries and community kitchens; and, conducting ethnographic research in their communities.
