Also very telling is this: 1,600 of our students were sent the following text message: “Some Hostos students miss meals due to money…Do you face this challenge?” Alarmingly, 69% of respondents replied “yes” and 14% replied “sometimes” for a total of 83% of respondents voluntarily reporting that they have lacked the money to feed themselves.
