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:

Tufts offers a variety of resources to combat food insecurity, including a "Swipe It Forward" meal donation program when students can donate meals to a pool that other students can use.

Students also run the FOOD RESCUE COLLABORATIVE - a partnership between Tufts Dining, students, staff/faculty, and the non-profit organization Food For Free, to minimize food waste at Tufts while at the same time addressing food insecurity in local host communities. It acts locally on and off campus to fight hunger and redirect surplus food.
