Does the institution host a food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource focused on alleviating food insecurity, hunger and poverty among students?:
Yes

A brief description of the food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource:

Community Cares endeavors to end food insecurity for BU Wheelock students, but its doors are open to the entire community of BU students who are in need of support. Community Cares will also help students in need of essentials like toiletries and feminine hygiene products. With our current resources, a BU student can access the pantry up to 3 times in each 30 day period. This pantry was established thanks to the support from the BU Wellbeing Project and the BU Wheelock Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee, one of Boston University’s first college-based EDI committees.
