Since the Fall 2020 semester began, the Bear Pantry has distributed more than 1,000lbs of food and hygiene items to members of the MSU community. We are offering online shopping and curbside pickup, as well as in-person shopping (limited numbers, of course).
As our numbers grow, our bag supply dwindles. Current Bear Pantry members are asked to bring back their reusable bag each visit to keep us sustainable. This also provides some more confidentiality for folks using the resource. If you have any reusable bags we could use, it would be greatly appreciated! Bags can be dropped off in the basement of University Hall, the location of the Bear Pantry, or the bags can be dropped off in the Plaster Student Union, Room 416.
- Nutrition and Dietetics Masters students are serving with the Bear pantry as one of their internship placements. Last week, Nicole presented a virtual food demo with ingredients found in the pantry!
- The MSU Campus Garden brought us 13 lbs of fresh produce this week, along with a bouquet of flowers!
