The Foundation office would like to let students and faculty know that the location of the Micro Food Pantry has changed.

The pantry can now be found inside the Foundation office which is located across from the Cyber Café in room C-202.

For those who may be unaware, the purpose of the Micro Food Pantry is to help students who come to school hungry and may not have very much food at home due to financial struggles.

Students in need may come into the Foundation office to grab a quick snack before class, said Fran Brolley, directer of the Foundation of Community Relations.

The pantry was originally founded by faculty and staff when it came to their attention that not all students come to school on a full stomach, and they wanted to help.

The pantry was originally run by Student Services in the Fall 2019 semester and has been given to the Foundation office just this Spring semester.

The Foundation office says they are happy to accept monetary donations, but they do not ask for food donations.

They have funds from their own from different donors which allow them to buy food for the pantry.

They are currently working on finding a way to efficiently accept monetary donations.
