As graduate student Elise N. notes in her article Eating and Socializing on a Budget in Cambridge, changing the way we budget around food can create new opportunities for socializing and saving. To learn more about budgeting, check out the OGE budget page.
The Food Security Action Team (FSAT) at MIT is continuously working to develop coordinated efforts around food security with the goal of creating student supports leading to a food-secure campus.
