Members of the ATU family worked together this summer to stock the shelves of the Green and Gold Cupboard.
Since July 17, a campus-wide drive collected more than 7,400 food items that can be used to support the cupboard this fall.
Multiple departments and offices across campus competed to see which group could donate the most items. Final competition results are available here: www.atu.edu/foodpantry.
The cupboard will open this fall and will help serve the ATU community.
“The Green and Gold Cupboard will offer non-perishable food to any member of the campus community who needs it,” said Dr. Sean Huss, professor of sociology. “Not only will it help feed Tech, it will provide a powerful teaching tool for students learning about food insecurity in their own backyard. In time, it is our hope that this will help alleviate the stigma of hunger on campus, create opportunities for students to help their fellow classmates and unite all members of Tech in the common goal to help its own.”
