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:

The Campus Food Shed was founded in 2017 by Hayden DePorter, a former UW-Madison undergraduate student, and Professor Irwin Goldman. The Campus Food Shed aims to address food insecurity and unnecessary food waste. Research produce, as well as other fresh produce that would otherwise be thrown away, is housed at several fridges located conveniently on the UW-Madison campus and is free for all students, faculty and staff. After becoming a registered student organization in the Spring of 2018, the Campus Food Shed aspires to promote campus sustainability, serve as a reliable food resource for the college community and eventually help implement similar initiatives on campuses across the nation.
