According to stuff.co.nz, a third of tertiary students in an Auckland-based study say they go without food at times because they cannot afford it.

The study by Unitec Institute of Technology found that a high number of the 1964 students surveyed struggled to meet basic needs. As a result, two-thirds of these students said they had “seriously considered” dropping out of the study due to financial pressures.

Student journalist Amy Henderson hit the streets of Auckland to ask people: Tertiary students are going without food because they cannot afford it. What are your thoughts on this?
