About the program

The Food Pantry at Columbia ([email protected]) spearheads the effort to address hunger amongst its student community and the stigma associated with food insecurity. Through partnership with Swipe Out Hunger, [email protected] has established a module with which to raise funds to support a more robust inventory, including access to a local farmshare to supplement the non-perishable goods kept in stock.
