Grand Valley State University Women's Center
Food Evolution: From Student Food Pantry to ReSTORE
The Student Food Pantry opened in April 2009, thanks to the hard work of Women's Center undergraduate student staff member Susana Villagomez and Women's Center Graduate Assistant Rachael DeWitt. Since that time, the Pantry continues to grow and is utilized daily by students.
In August 2015, the Student Food Pantry moved out of the Women's Center to newly aquired independent space in Kirkhof 0074 and was renamed ReSTORE. ReSTORE offers extended hours and services with new capacity for both parishable and non-parishable items.
