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 University hosts a food bank/open pantry, called the Eagle Food Co-op, in partnership with a group called the Bread Coffeehouse at the edge of campus. Bread is an official student organization and recognized campus ministry, associated with Emory’s Office of Spiritual and Religious Life. It aims to alleviate food insecurity in the Emory community and provide a comfortable place for students’ spiritual lives. Bread, in partnership with Emory Dining and the Office of Student Success, offers a free Open Pantry for students at Emory who are in need. They carry fresh produce from Emory Dining, fresh bread from the local Rise and Dine restaurant, groceries of all types, and hygiene products. Any department can host a donation box in their office or bring in donations for the Eagle Food Co-op. For more information, please see Bread Emory’s mission statement below or contact Adrienne Slaughter at adrienne.slaughter@emory.edu.
