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:

OHIO recognizes that some students may not have enough to eat on a daily or weekly basis. The Cats’ Cupboard food pantry, located on the fifth floor of Baker University Center, provides students access to fresh, frozen, and shelf stable food options to help with hunger. OHIO offers a Meal Bank, where students donate up to three meals a semester into a bank and those in need can apply to get 5 meals added to their ID card to use in the dining hall.
