New Food Pantry Opens at UAF

FAIRBANKS- It’s the season of giving, and the time of year that agencies across Fairbanks reach out for donations, so they can share with the less fortunate. UAF has a new program called, the Food Pantry, which offers free food to students who are struggling to pay for meals. Currently, UAF student organizations are competing to donate the most food items to the program. There will be an official “weigh-in” tomorrow night at 5:00 p.m., in the Wood Center, to crown the champion donors. Of course, year-round donations are welcome because organizers would like the Food Pantry to become a constant service at UAF. The Pantry opens to students seeking assistance, next Monday.
