For the sixth year, Fresno City College will participate in the #GivingTuesday fundraising campaign that will benefit the Ram Pantry. This year the goal is to raise $40,000!
Food insecurity is defined as having limited access to adequate food, or not knowing where your next meal will come from. Currently, Fresno is the 5th most food insecure metropolitan city in the US. Nearly 25% of city residents are unable to consistently put food on their table. Over 11,000 children struggle with hunger daily (Food Research and Action Center).
The Ram Pantry has helped to address the food insecurity issue among our students since opening in 2015. This year we have experienced recording breaking numbers with thousands of students visiting the pantry every day. For the 2023 fall semester we have had over 1,100 student visits daily with a grand total of over 50,000 visits recorded.
