While practicing social distancing and other health precautions, the MTSU Student Food Pantry continues to feed students in need.

With a minimum of MTSU personnel working on campus, bags of food and hygiene products are still available for students who go to the MT One Stop counter on the second floor of the Student Services and Admissions Center. Students will not be allowed in the pantry itself, but they will receive a couple of bags of food at the counter.

Danielle Rochelle, coordinator of outreach and support programs and supervisor of the pantry, said her inventory is in pretty good shape after her visits to Kroger’s and Sam’s Club two weeks ago.

“It’s been a little challenging,” Rochelle said. “I’ve had to rearrange the limits of what students can and cannot get.”

Rochelle said each bag of food should last for two to three days. Meal vouchers good for takeout food from McCallie Dining Hall also are available for students. Hygiene bags include items such as soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste and shampoo.

“As long as there is somebody in our office, there will be an option to come to the pantry,” Rochelle said.

The MTSU Student Food Pantry remains open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, go to https://www.mtsu.edu/foodpantry/index.php or send an email to danielle.rochelle@mtsu.edu.

MTSU has posted a link on its main website, www.mtsu.edu, where donations can be made electronically to various student emergency funds and services, including the food pantry, that support students in need. Donors can specify where their funds go.
