USA Food Pantry for students is now open!


With the support of on-campus partners, Donor to Diner at USA has established a campus food pantry in the Academic Services Center. The food pantry contains non-perishable food items and is available to any USA student in need. College food insecurity (hunger) is unfortunately a common but relatively unknown problem that impacts students all over the country. Approximately 57% of USA students have experienced food insecurity at some point in their careers. The pantry is designed by students to help our fellow Jaguars. 

Please contact usadonortodiner@gmail.com if you would like to access the pantry or see http://usadonortodiner.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html.  All correspondences are confidential.  

If you would like to work with D2D to help increase awareness of this issue or help us maintain the food pantry, please check out the Volunteer tab. Join our email list by filling out this form:  https://goo.gl/forms/XPtGYEN7I55OgWyA3
