HUNTER COLLEGE–If it wasn’t for Hunter College, Kiku Ono wouldn’t eat as many vegetables. Every Thursday either her or her boyfriend head to the third floor of Hunter North to pick up a bag of produce and then cook together at the Brookdale dorm where they live. They split the $14 cost per bag. Ono finds that healthy cooking at home is much easier.

“I would like to have a balanced diet, it’s not always possible,” said Ono, a senior studying music. “I probably eat out more without that Fresh Food Box.”
