Thank You!
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the Fall Fest Food Drive! This Food Drive was our biggest yet, bringing in 1,311 pounds of food!

A special thank you to Student Senate for continuing to sponsor the club contest, which inspires some fun competition to help stock our shelves. The winners of this year’s competition were Gamers of Durham, with 370 pounds of food collected, and Phi Beta Lambda, with 363 pounds of food collected. We are so grateful that these clubs, along with the International Students Club, Amigos Unidos, Phi Theta Kappa, SOTA, and the Early Childhood Program, and the many individual faculty, staff, and students who participated, made such a big effort to support us.

The pantry is located in the Phillips Building, room 310A.
