Story Features Eagle’s Nest Food Pantry, Highlights Food Insecurity

Eagles Nest

Two recent studies about food insecurity show why the on-campus Eagle’s Nest Food Pantry is such a crucial resource at Southern Miss.

Students Jacky Thompson and Tyesha Christopher, along with Dr. Tamara Hurst, are featured in a recent story in the Hattiesburg American that highlights the efforts of the pantry to serve the needs of the campus community and look for innovative opportunities like the Swipe Out Hunger campaign.

The surveys found almost half of students at two- and-four year colleges have food insecurity, which in turns impacts their class attendance and ability to buy textbooks.

Read the full story – including a video interview with Tyesha – on the Hattiesburg American website.
