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:

Spiritan Brother Gerald Keating served the Duquesne community from 1924 until 1980. In that time, he developed the Our Lady of Victories Shrine and garden and served a campus chef for many decades. During the Great Depression, Brother Keating quietly supported students who felt the crippling impact of the economic collapse, thus enabling them to successfully complete their academic studies.

The Keating Initiative seeks to assist food insecure students, faculty, and staff. The initiative includes comprehensive "wrap-around" services that include health and wellness, meal vouchers, and a campus food pantry.

Individuals wishing to utilize the Keating Initiative are asked to complete an intake document which will enable them full access to the pantry and other services. This document can be completed either online or in person at Office of Freshman Development.
