Combating Food Insecurity at Duke: Feed Every Devil Program
The Feed Every Devil Program, or FED, aims to address food insecurity among Duke students. Food insecurity is a serious problem in the university environment, leading to increased anxiety and unhealthy diets, negatively impacting student performance. The FED program tackles this problem with an application that allows students to donate their extra food points through a web or mobile interface to a Duke-managed Food Points bank. Students can make requests for food points, and upon approval, will receive a small supplement from the Food Points bank.
