Quote of the Day 10/26/2016

“Hunger is very real and very raw. It’s down the South Oval, and hunger is in the Union sitting on a couch. Hunger is in our classrooms. You can’t ever look at someone and assume you know what they’re going through because hunger is in the whole entire college campus-climbing social ladder. Every single tier we’ve created, hunger is on it; people just don’t really like to talk about it.”

-University of Oklahoma student Joelle Glimp, one of many college students who struggle with hunger in the state. Oklahoma consistently ranks in the top five for the number of people who do not get enough to eat (Source)
