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:
Rally Cat’s Cupboard, a food pantry created by Student Government Association (SGA), is designed to help food insecure undergraduate, graduate and medical students. SGA advocated for the idea of a food pantry because of the responsibility SGA has to UVM students to respond to needs UVM students are currently facing. A survey run by assistant professor of food systems, Meredith Niles, found that 26% of UVM undergraduate students have experienced food insecurity. All students need to access the food pantry is their student ID.
