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

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

The Cobber Food Pantry is the product of many conversations lead by students over the past few years, sharing the need for the campus to provide resources to students facing food insecurity.

Fast forward to March 2020, as a result of the impacts of COVID-19, the number of students facing food insecurity increased significantly, which became apparent from the information collected through student surveys during the pandemic.

The Cobber Food Pantry is an evolving effort and partnership among Health Services, Office of Student Engagement, Sustainability, and all of the students and community members who volunteer and give us feedback.

At Concordia College, we recognize that access to regular, healthy meals and snacks is a human right. The Cobber Food Pantry was created to provide a reliable source of food for all Cobbers. The Pantry is open for 2 hours, 2 days a week as well as provides food boxes and appointments upon request. It has also become a partner of the Great Plains Food Bank, providing a source of food that is extremely cost effective.
