JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Arkansas State University students are joining forces to make sure their food pantry’s shelves are filled.
Each year, the Student Government Association president creates a budget. This year, President Erika Tuck chose to give $1,000 to the Volunteer A-State Food Pantry.
SGA and the Student Activities Board went grocery shopping and spent half of the money, filling the pantry’s shelves.
Tuck says the food pantry helps everyone on campus.
“It’s nice that you’re not just helping students, but you’re also helping the people who are serving you your meal on campus,” she said. “It’s nice to give back to them, too.”
Tuck says it takes many organizations to help to tackle food insecurity on campus.
