The Food Access and Resources (FARE) Project is a collaborative project between Pepperdine's Student Affairs and the Office of Institutional Effectiveness. The project is designed to gather information on access and affordability associated with food and hunger among Seaver College students. California colleges are currently facing a new barrier towards degree completion: food insecurity. The United States Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as a household economic or social condition which results in having limited or uncertain access to adequate food.
