Campus Food Pantry Serves Students in Need

The SUNY New Paltz food pantry was established in 2012 in order to combat food insecurity on campus. The community and local businesses have helped the pantry grow and expand in order to meet the needs of more students.

This audio story was produced by Sarah Chen and Elva Chen for Prof. Brett Barry’s Fall 2019 Audio Production class.
“I have heard recently that some wonder why we need an on campus food pantry. Today [October 23] between the hours of 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., over 60 students visited the food pantry.  Over and over again students shared comments such as ‘I have been so hungry, thank you for this,’ and ‘thank you for this it helps me so much’ and ‘I really depend on this.’ If you have not visited us, come see for yourself the work we do. The food pantry is located in SUB 322. I am there Wednesday afternoons.”

Rev. Dr. Dianna Smith 
Director/Founder Campus Food Pantry
