Tiger Pantry seeks donations during the holidays

Tiger Pantry is taking donations this holiday season.

Anyone can donate goods to MU’s food bank by dropping items in donation bins placed on campus.

The bins are located at the CSI Greek Life entrance, the Women’s Center, the Registar’s Office, the Townsend Hall and Cornell Hall, according to the Tiger Pantry website.

Items in high demand include peanut butter and jelly, canned chicken and tuna, cereal, macaroni and cheese, mashed potato mix, powdered milk, and rice.

People can also consider hosting a food drive or making a monetary donation. 

Paul Haluszczak, the pantry’s director, said that donations to the food bank  have continued to increase during the fall semester. 

Haluszczak also said that pantry representatives do more than manage the food bank. They also give presentations.

“Outside of establishing long term relationships with various organizations on and off campus for annual food drives, Tiger Pantry encourages groups to request presentations from Tiger Pantry in order to learn about our services and how food insecurity is prevalent on a college campus,” Haluszczak said.

Donations to Tiger Pantry can be made through a credit card donation or payroll deduction, said Cathy Scroggs, vice chancellor for student affairs. 

For more information, visit, email, visit the food bank at 1400 Rock Quarry Road, Room 8, or call 882-3780.
