Procurement of a 24/7 accessible Community Fridge!
Here in the University of Washington on the Seattle campus, we host a myriad of students with their varying backgrounds. My claim about UW and our students is meant to be broad because it means that we have a broad and wide range of students coming from different communities, income classes, neighborhoods, and across nations borders. As an institution, we are responsible for the care and well-being of our students in providing ways and resources to not only succeed in their academics but also experience success in their personal life and development. Without ensuring sustained student health and well-being, a student cannot be expected to learn and work. We have students who may struggle during their academic career due to financial and/or food insecurity. This can be shown in a study that was conducted by the Evans School of Public Policy (copypaste link to view https://evans.uw.edu/wp-content/uploads/files//student_housing_and_food_insecurity_report_may2019.pdf).
