On-Campus Food Bank Lion’s Pantry To Hold Ribbon-Cutting

If you’re feeling insecure about your low food supply, a new student initiative is here to stock your pantry.

Lion’s Pantry, located just west of the Blue Band Building on far north campus, will have its ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house today at 2:30 p.m. The organization’s goal is to “address the issue of student hunger at Penn State University Park,” and, “help provide sustenance to Penn State students experiencing food-insecurity,” according to its website.

“One of the points that President Barron wants to focus his administration in is: affordability and accessibility,” said Lion’s Pantry president Alex Mendonca. “Lion’s Pantry is helping this goal become a reality by supplementing students facing food insecurity with non-perishable food items.”

Lion’s Pantry will officially open in the spring every Thursday from 6-8 p.m, starting January 15. Prior to that, it will hold information sessions on November 20, December 4, and 11, from 6-8 p.m. Lion’s Pantry took part in the Penn State Muslim Students’ Association Fast-a-Thon last year, and also asked incoming freshmen to bring food to New Student Orientation, which it donated to the State College Food Bank.

If you have any questions for the new organization, send an email to l[email protected].
