Grand Opening of Bucky's Food Pantry, November 14, 2012
The mission of the food pantry is to diminish or end food insecurity for the ETSU community in the most convenient, discreet and easily accessible means possible.
The goal of the food pantry is to aid those in need of food resources as well as raise awareness of food insecurity and hunger on ETSU campus. Ultimately, the food pantry can expand its resources to cover non-food items such as hygiene products and clothing, if donations are made available.
