In collaboration with the college Food Pantry, operated by the Benefits Access Center (BAC), the college Staff Council Helping Hands volunteer committee have begun an ONGOING initiative to assist in the efforts to keep the Food Pantry stocked for students in need.
As stated in The Viking News, “67 percent of community college students are food insecure” (as cited in a study published by Hope Lab, 2017). This, unfortunately, is what a great deal of students face on a daily basis, and is why Helping Hands has decided to assist with food collection in perpetuity.
