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:
The Student Food Pantry—a ministry of the Episcopal Campus Ministry in Eugene and a partner agency with Food for Lane County—is open to all college students in the greater Eugene area. Founded in 2011, the pantry provides free supplemental food for college students. Depending upon availability, this may include canned fruits and vegetables; frozen and fresh vegetables; bread, rice, pasta, and cereal; canned beans, soups, and other protein sources; dairy products, frozen meats, and meat substitutes. Additional quantities are given to students with children.
Student success starts with a full belly and with the help of our donors, partners, and volunteers, the Student Food Pantry is able to provide nutritious food to students.

The Student Food Pantry is open to college students from any school-- it is not exclusive to University of Oregon students. The Student Food Pantry is an equal opportunity provider. We welcome students of all denominations, backgrounds, ethnicities, colors, and sexualities.
