GSW provides food safety net

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Information from Georgia Southwestern State University- 

College students, who often live on tight budgets, rely on their meal plans each semester. But, if a meal plan does not last the entire semester, some college students have difficulty paying for food.

At Georgia Southwestern State University, the Office of Campus Life is tackling this issue with the new food pantry program, "Feed the Future."

The food pantry is stocked by donations of non-perishable food items or items with an extended shelf-life from the community.

Students must be referred by a faculty, staff, or professional and present a valid student ID. Currently, there is a limit of two visits per student per fall and spring semester. "Feed the Future" will start taking referrals for this semester soon.

The "Feed the Future" food pantry is located in the Student Success Center, room 3461. For more information, Contact Josh Curtin at josh.curtin@gsw.edu or (229) 931-2377.
