Community College of Phila. expands food pantry to help hungry students

More and more colleges are recognizing that they aren't immune from the issue of hunger.

Last year's"Hunger on Campus" national report says it's driving some students to choose between classes and food.

It's happening at the Community College of Philadelphia.

The goal is to end hunger there, so students can concentrate more on their education.

Twice a week, Jenavia Weaver, Verna Gillins or other volunteers from the Student Government Association form a small assembly line, creating snack packs at the Winnett Student Center.
