Family Experience is partnering with the LSU Food Pantry for the 2017 Family Weekend Service Project.
Did you know that 1,263 students (of 30,451 enrolled students) are in need of food assistance at least once during the academic year? The LSU Food Pantry opened in August, 2013 and its mission is to provide supplemental food to students in need who may experience hunger or food insecurity. The Food Pantry was a valuable resource after the tragic and historical flooding in Louisiana, providing 2,574 uses by 600 students, faculty and staff in the 2016-2017 academic year.
The Food Pantry is in constant need of food items to keep up with this demand, and we know our LSU Families can help! The staff in Campus Life has provided the top 9 food items that are needed. Families can bring these to Family Weekend and drop them off at Check-in or contribute to the Food Pantry via their Amazon Wish List or online giving page, all of which can be found at www.lsu.edu/foodpantry. Cash, Check and credit card donations will also be accepted at Family Weekend Check-in. Thank you so much for helping to re-stock the Food Pantry!
Bring these items to Family Weekend:
- Canned beans
- Peanut butter
- Canned chicken
- Canned tuna
- Rice (All kinds)
- Ready meals (Chef Boyarde, Easy Mac, etc.)
