$3,000 match challenge by June 30th for Foothill's most vulnerable student population

Food insecurity and homelessness are growing concerns among college students. Not surprisingly, having to live in one of the most expensive areas in the country, many Foothill students struggle with not being able to meet their basic needs. Students who don't have a permanent home may be couch-surfing or even living in their cars, yet they remain determined to continue with their education. However, even the most steadfast student's success is at risk when faced with homelessness and hunger.
