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:

Feed-A-Bull, an initiative spearheaded by Student Health Services and Feeding America Tampa Bay, strives to alleviate food hardship and hunger among USF students by providing supplemental food, nutrition education and resources to students in need, in order to promote student success and retention. The pantry was created as a response to the knowledge that some students face food insecurity while attending the university, and supplemental food assistance may assist in allowing students to focus on their studies. By providing emergency food assistance, Feed-A-Bull works to make sure that our students would not have to choose between buying text books or buying groceries, and helps to ensure that no student goes hungry.
