Have you ever faced food scarcity? Are you currently facing food scarcity in college? Then you’re in luck: IU South Bend has an accessible food pantry called Titans Feeding Titans, which provides immediate relief to students that suffer from food insecurity.
The pantry, located in the Fine Arts Building room 111 offers free, healthy food, household items and hygiene products to students and faculty. From snacks to meals, the pantry offers a wide variety of necessities to those in need.
The hours of operation are typically Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but hours often vary based on volunteer availability. When those in need come to the pantry, the only thing that is required is a Crimson Card ID. All IU South Bend community members are welcome to use the pantry, regardless of their financial situation.
Throughout the semester, the Titan Feeding Titans food pantry has started to run dry. While it is a great thing that so many students are utilizing the pantry, the pantry needs to restock the shelves so it can continue to be used by people who need it.
In order to achieve this goal, in partnership with the food pantry, the Freshman Honors Class has launched a donation drive to collect food, books, clothing and more. The drive will run from Nov. 7 through Nov. 18.
Donations can be dropped off in the collection containers located in the Administration Building Honors Lounge, Wiekamp main hallway, Northside Hall main hallway (outside performance hall) and the Education and Arts atrium.
For more information, contact Professor Tammy Fong-Morgan or visit the Honors Lounge.
