Student Food Pantry seeks donations
Posted on November 02, 2009
The Student Food Pantry, sponsored by the Women's Center and other campus departments, has helped more than 150 students since it began last April.
"The program has been very successful because of the consistent food donations and the demand for help are balanced," said Rachael DeWitt, graduate assistant and coordinator of the Student Food Pantry.
Most of the donations have come from group sponsorships and Grand Valley faculty and staff members. "The Grand Valley community's extreme generosity allows us to move forward and keep the pantry well-stocked," DeWitt said.
Monetary, non-perishable, and toiletry items are welcome. Donations are accepted at the Women's Center, 1201 Kirkhof Center; call (616) 331-2748 for more information.
