Food Pantry

The SGA is proud to provide leadership for the Food Pantry program on campus.  Located in the Student Union, the SGA Food Pantry has shelves stacked with nonperishable goods, including canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, cereal, nutrition bars, peanut butter, and much more for students facing food insecurity.  All items are free to those students who need them. 

To arrange for a visit to the pantry, visit the SGA Office of the first floor of the Student Union during Office Hours, or email Vice President Jackson Harless.  The pantry accepts monetary contributions or donations of nonperishable food items, diapers, and baby wipes.  If you would like to donate, contact a member of the SGA today.  Thanks so much & GO BIG BLUE!
