Empty plate: Wanting in the Land of Plenty

Wanting in the land of plenty

The problem is persistent. And it’s everywhere.

Fifty million Americans don’t know where their next meal is coming from. In Ohio, 2 million people are hungry. And 21 percent of children in Franklin County are food insecure. It’s a wall of hard truth, but there are windows.

Over the next decade, Ohio State will invest nearly $125 million in food security, combatting this critical challenge from all disciplinary fronts as an integral element of President Michael V. Drake’s 2020 Vision for the university.

High Points

Access, affordability and excellence. The university has frozen in-state tuition and mandatory fees for undergraduates for the fifth consecutive year, meaning Ohio students in the classes of 2016 and 2017 will graduate with no increases. Beyond tuition, Ohio State instituted a comprehensive freeze, including room and board, for 2015-2016 — the first of its kind in at least four decades.
