Psi Beta creates Student Food Exchange Pantry

Members of Psi Beta, the National Honor Society for Psychology in the Community College, have installed a Student Food Exchange Pantry in Sneden Hall. The purpose of this pantry is to provide free food to any GRCC student. It will be a community-based model similar to community book exchanges: If you need some food, take some food. If you can share some food, leave some food.

The inspiration for this pantry came from the data shared at SLT in January that in any given month, 45 percent of GRCC students experienced food insecurity. Simply stated, almost half of GRCC students at some time during the month did not have enough food to meet their basic needs.

The students built and painted the pantry, which is across from the elevators on the first floor of Sneden.
