"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

If You Teach, Consider Doing This To Help Fight Hunger

Teaching peeps: if you haven’t already, please consider adding a hunger and homelessness statement to your syllabus, letting students know that not only are there resources available on your campus, but that you care, that both their well-being and their dignity matter.
 
Here’s mine.
________________________________________
 
Food and Housing Insecurity Statement for Syllabus
 
Food insecurity is defined as conditions in which persons, in this case, students, do not have adequate resources to feed themselves, either nutritiously or not at all (USDA, 2013). According to a recent studies, hunger and homelessness. are common and growing problems for students at colleges and universities across the country, potentially undermining the educational success of untold thousands of students. If food insecurity or shelter are issues for you, or for someone you know, please know help is readily available.
 
Any student who has difficulty affording groceries or accessing sufficient food to eat every day, or who lacks a safe and stable place to live, and believes this may affect their performance in the course, is urged to contact me, or another professor with whom you are comfortable, for a list of resources and support. This will enable us to assist you in finding the resources you may need. I promise complete confidentiality.
 
Longwood’s student food pantry, Elwood’s Cabinet, as well as the Lil Office Food Bank, maintained by an English professor in Grainger, are free resources with food and personal care items.
 
Elwood’s Cabinet is located in the basement of the Wesleyan Campus Ministry building at 204 High Street, across from Ruffner. They are open Monday nights, 6-930pm. More details are available here: https://elwoodscabinet.weebly.com/
 
The Lil Office Foodbank is located in Grainger 112, open Tuesdays 1230-2 & 5-9, and Thursdays, 1230-2, and as needed by appointment. You can email me and I will meet you there any time you are in need, even after hours.
 
Do not go hungry. We can help.
