Ned Resnikoff interviews Yvonne Montoya on her project to fight hunger on campus.
She began reaching out to other colleges and universities in California, asking how many of them already mandated acceptance of food stamp benefits on their campuses. Out of the 16 schools she called, none of them had such a policy. When Montoya asked why not, she says they replied that nobody had ever asked them before. It was then that Montoya decided the Roosevelt Institute’s SMC chapter should focus its efforts on California-based colleges and universities specifically.
