About a third of California community college students surveyed said they are facing homelessness or housing insecurity, according to a report released Monday.

"Struggling to Survive, Striving to Succeed: Food and Housing Insecurities in the Community College" also found that 12 percent of surveyed students don't know where their next meal will come from.

A total of 3,600 students in the California community college system were surveyed.

The report details the consequences of experiencing housing and food insecurity and ways colleges can help.

The report was authored by Luke Wood, Frank Harris III and Nexi Delgado of The Community College Equity Assessment Lab at San Diego State University.

On Monday, Wood discusses the report and a local college that is making progress in addressing housing and food insecurities among students.
