Frances Wolf visits Bucks County Community College to discuss college hunger and affordability


First Lady Frances Wolf visited Bucks County Community College (BCCC) and joined students and staff for a discussion on college hunger on Monday.

Wolf addressed the growing need for resources for students experiencing food and basic needs insecurity and discussed Gov. Tom Wolf's proposed $1 million investment to address college hunger and $200 million investment to create the Nellie Bly Scholarship Program in the 2022-23 state budget.

"Too many college students are overworked and underserved as they pursue futures that can benefit all of Pennsylvania," said Wolf. "With proposals like the Hunger-Free Campus initiative and Nellie Bly, we have an opportunity to alleviate the burden of hunger for the students who need it most and help them pay for the stifling costs of higher education."
