Description

www.GoodMorningGwinnett.com Georgia Gwinnett College students are getting a new place to visit when they need some food.

The college recently announced the opening of its Care Pantry, which will stock nonperishable food items and dairy products. The pantry is designed to serve GGC students who have a valid GGC Claw Card and offer them access to fresh vegetables, fruits, proteins and dairy products.

“The Care Pantry allows GGC to step in to assist members of our Grizzly family who are unable to obtain enough food to sustain a healthy lifestyle,” said GGC President Jann L. Joseph, who spoke at the pantry’s ribbon cutting on July 22. “The percentage of students who face food insecurity is surprisingly staggering, and we are excited to contribute to the many initiatives around the country designed to alleviate hunger.”

The pantry is a partnership between the college and the Lawrenceville Co-Op Food Bank Ministry and they are working with community and campus partners to offer prepackaged food to students. School officials said 81% of GGC students qualify for some type of financial aid and 52% of them qualify for Pell grants.
