Another SUNY Campus Opens a Food Pantry
Another New York State college is joining Binghamton University by opening a food pantry to help students struggling to put food on the table.
The Associated Press reports SUNY Adirondack’s pantry will provide food and personal care items to any enrolled student. No proof of need or documentation of income is required. The pantry will be located on the school's campus in Queensbury.
Yasmin Lopez, the college's community connections coordinator, says food insecurity is an issue on many campuses and SUNY Adirondack wants to do whatever it can to help any students in need.
Binghamton University has had a campus food bank for several years and students are very active in collecting food donations for the entire community with contributions to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW). The Vestal campus also hosts the annual CHOW Hunger Walk.
