About Presidents United To Solve Hunger

No academic program is effective if a student is hungry or homeless. As a participant in the Presidents United to Solve Hunger (PUSH) initiative, Central cares for students who are homeless or hungry by responding to students in emergency situations by providing the vital resources that students need to succeed.

As one program advocate shared, “It’s not enough to provide a scholarship that covers tuition. A hungry student cannot learn effectively. We have to feed the body before we feed the mind.”
