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 Division of Student Affairs identified a need for a food pantry at W&L that aims to alleviate food insecurity among students by providing emergency food to those in need.

The Food Pantry aims to:
-Create a safe space to distribute good quality and nutritious emergency food to current students.
-Collaborate with Campus Garden and Campus Kitchen to provide good quality and nutritious food items (donations) that may otherwise go to waste to enhance sustainability initiatives on campus.
-Raise awareness around hunger issues, especially as experienced by low-income college students.
-Encourage student engagement to foster a sense of community.
