Viterbo University has found major success with their student food pantry. Partnering with the campus Hunger Task Force, Viterbo has two no-questions-asked student food pantries. These food pantries allow students in need to have easy access to food. Viterbo notes that “students have expressed in anonymous ways their deep gratitude for the food pantry and how it truly impacts their lives in times of need.”
Campus Ministry and the Hunger Task Force are launching a new initiative called the Case-a-Month Club. This is “an opportunity for employees to sign up to contribute a monthly case of food on a regular basis. This would help fill any food needs that are not being met by the Hunger Task Force.” Viterbo’s Student Food Pantry program demonstrates their commitment to the Franciscan core values of serving those in need.
