According to Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs, hungry, homeless, or unsafe students, fail to reach their optimal potential. Studies show that students who are hungry are less likely to complete their academic goals. PVC's Food Insecurity Advisory Committee vows to provide Palo Verde College students with resources, in addition to food, to help combat food insecurity on campus.

The Food Advisory Committee meets monthly on the 4th Wednesday of the month in CL 101 at 11 AM.
