In a survey, 27% of OHIO students experienced food insecurity

If you can't afford to eat a balanced meal, if you skip meals, or eat smaller meals because you are worried your food will run out before you get more money, visit the Cats' Cupboard in Baker. Students who have enough food are less stressed and do better in school.
