Read Newsday – “Long Island college students get help from on-campus food pantries” By Michael Cusanelli Updated June 9, 2018 10:25 AM

Luigi Pesce is one of the college students on Long Island, and among the 36 percent of college students nationwide, who struggle with food insecurity…

Of the 17 colleges on Long Island, Stony Brook is one of six that has a food pantry, along with Nassau Community College, SUNY Old Westbury, Hofstra University, St. Joseph’s College and Suffolk County Community College. SUNY Farmingdale is currently in the process of developing its own pantry with help from NCC. Students only need to show their school ID in order to utilize the pantries.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo proposed establishing the No Student Goes Hungry Program, an on-site food pantry or outside arrangement for food assistance for all state schools, in his 2018 State of the State address. Currently, fewer than half of SUNY and CUNY campuses across the state have food pantries, according to Cuomo’s office.

There are more than 570 campus food pantries nationwide, up from fewer than 10 in 2009, according to the release.

Food insecurity is more severe at community colleges nationwide, where 42 percent of students are food insecure, according to an April survey from the Wisconsin HOPE Lab, a research laboratory that specializes in postsecondary education… More online

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:           Christopher Adams, Ed.D., Vice President for Student Affairs

SUBJECT:     Christina Vargas Named as Grand Marshal of the

52nd Annual Puerto Rican/Hispanic Day Parade – Sunday, June 3rd

I am pleased to share with the college community that Christina Vargas, Chief Diversity Officer for Suffolk County Community College, has been selected as this year’s Grand Marshal for Long Island’s largest parade—the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Day Parade. The parade will be held this coming Sunday, June 3rd, commencing at noon and ending at approximately 3 p.m.

As always, the parade is scheduled to take place, rain or shine, in Brentwood.  With tens of thousands of spectators lining the parade route along Fifth Avenue in Brentwood, thousands of marchers will head north for almost 1½ miles from the Southern State Parkway Service Road to 4th Avenue.

We are encouraging all College faculty, staff, students, alumni and families to join us and march in support of this important community event and in celebration of Christina’s recognition as Grand Marshal.  The position line-up begins at 10 a.m., and all participants must be in position before 11 a.m. as streets will eventually be closed. The College’s parade line-up position is #7 (right behind our Grand Marshal).  Anyone planning to march should arrive at our meeting location, which is 5th Industrial Court (off Fifth Avenue), in Bay Shore, NY.

This year’s parade theme, “El Puente de la Esperanza / The Bridge of Hope,” will highlight Puerto Rico’s recovery following Hurricane Maria, while celebrating how communities come together in times of need through culture and art.

Christina, along with the other parade honorees, epitomize the event theme, as each of these individuals brings hope to the local community through their daily work:

  • Grand Marshal: Christina Vargas, Chief Diversity Officer, Suffolk County Community College
  • Presidential Award: Presiding Officer of the Suffolk County Legislature, DuWayne Gregory
  • Sandra M. Gil Champion Award: Isabel Sepulveda, Long Island East End Advocate
  • Nilda Alvarez Social Justice Award: Irma Solis, NYCLU, Long Island Chapter Director
  • Roberto Clemente Humanitarian Award: Sam Cruz, KBG Logistics

Parade Officials

The music, floats, dancers and artistic displays will all be part of the day’s excitement. We hope you will join us in celebrating Suffolk County Community College and Christina Vargas as the parade’s Grand Marshal.  I am confident it will be an enjoyable day of community and culture!
