At the beginning of 2021 year, media put in their agenda in first page to take over the students call : No Food, unhealthy Food, not enough, no Money, sanitary distress, …Also scientist researches has been promoted in the same way and gave the first signals.

With the Transatlantic collaboration of academics has been highlighted three major risk factor through student report : the high levels of food insecurity, job loss and low levels of mental wellbeing during the pandemic. This sanitary crisis generated a general panic to stay alive. So wrong questions involved wrong answers. That can be attested by finding no expensive food, most of the time it is unhealthy food.

 

It was and it is a way out to stay alive, for most of students during the outbreak of this desease.

Many universities were not prepared or not enough facing the situation. Some students testimonies can speak about food boxes filled with junk food, some delivery meals were too expensive and unhealthy. Some of them stayed several days with stomach pains or dehydrated.
