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:
In 2011, UGA Students recognized a need on campus and decided to address the troubling situation of student hunger. We serve an average of 100 students per day and no one is ever asked to provide proof of need. The pantry also strives to provide information about other resources offered on campus and in the community. The Pantry provides a variety of non-perishable items such as canned soup, vegetables, breakfast items, pasta + sauces, canned meat, and snacks. We recently acquired a refrigerator that allows us to provide items like cheese, yogurt, and vegetables. Visitors simply need to complete a brief, confidential form before picking up food.
