JANUARY 2023 recipient: PELLISSIPPI PANTRY
In January, we are collecting change to feed people.
- Objective: To raise $7,000 to provide food to students and staff experiencing food insecurity in the Pellissippi State Community College community.
Since opening in the Summer of 2016, the Pellissippi Pantry has provided a 3-5 day supply of emergency food, including fresh produce from the Hardin Valley Campus Garden, to participants and their household members on all five campuses. In mid-2022, the pantry moved from a 115 sq. ft. space to a new larger facility on the Hardin Valley Campus with 700 sq. ft. for packing and storage and a 700 sq. ft. “Walk In” pantry for participants to “shop” for what they need with points assigned based on household size.
