Carll got the student some food from her dorm room and later volunteered at Stony Brook's new food pantry one of dozens cropping up at colleges across the country in recent years as educators acknowledge the struggles many students face as the cost of getting a higher education continues to soar.

Some students have opted to hand back some of the items in the bag, telling volunteers they only need a can of soup or other item to get them through the night.

Support from the college community has been overwhelming; a food drive organized by student varsity athletes brought in more than 100 pounds of food last semester. The pantry has actually had to turn away some donations.
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.
