We need just 26 more meal kits to reach our goal! Can you help us reach 100?
No student should have to study on an empty stomach. The adverse effects of food insecurity on student mental and physical health can be seen on college campuses across the country. UMB is helping to address student food insecurity through its student pantry and pop-up pantry meal kits.
Since opening in fall 2021 the UMB Student Pantry has:
- held seven pantry pop-up events that served 350 students.
- received and fulfilled 170 student food request forms.
Monday, May 2, is the last day of UMB’s Spring Pantry Campaign to fund 100 meal kits (total cost: $1,000) for students preparing for spring finals. As of April 26, the Student Pantry is 74 percent toward achieving this goal.
We need just 26 more meal kits to reach 100. Each kit costs $10 to create and provides four servings of food per student.
Please consider a gift of $10, $20, $50, or more to support this campus resource and help us fuel the bodies and minds of our students!
