Food Security Resources
Food insecurity is the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods, or the ability to acquire such foods in a socially acceptable manner. The most extreme form is often accompanied with physiological sensations of hunger.
There are two ways you can recieve immediate support:
- Iggy's Cupboard is an initiative led by Commuter Student Life (CSL) and meant to offer short term resources to Loyola students experiencing temporary hardship. Click here to submit a request for food items. Please note that you do not have to be a commuter student to recieve food security resources.
- If you are in need of a long term plan of action, please submit a CARE Referral, and a staff member will email you to explore additional options. Click here to submit a CARE Referral.
