Varsity students raise funds to feed hungry classmates

The rising cost of living isn't just causing empty wallets. It is also causing empty stomachs among university students who cannot afford two meals a day, let alone three during certain periods of their study.

This is especially at the start and end of their semesters, when their loans and scholarship money have yet to be banked in.

Fortunately for those studying in public universities, their fellow students are taking matters into their own hands by starting a suspended meals programme, which encourages those better off to help, in advance, to pay for the meals of the others in need.
