As students attending college, we rise to many challenges that can feel overwhelming. Our daily struggles may include balancing work and family obligations, adapting to online classes, maintaining a good GPA or competing for internship positions.
We show up and work hard to achieve a degree we believe will guarantee a bright future and financial security. Unfortunately, many students are fighting for this same opportunity with an extra hurdle to jump- hunger.
There are students who, while in a pursuit of an education for a more sustainable life, are faced with food insecurity. To help alleviate this issue, The food pantry at Bridgewater State University provides a variety of non-perishable goods and even frozen meals from Sodexo that are packaged and stored in a freezer.
The food bank that was formerly located on the ground floor of the RSU building is now located on the first floor of RSU in room 105.
