The Cougar Food Pantry is a student led organization that was created to combat food insecurity while helping to unify the College of Charleston campus through collaboration and student involvement. Acknowledging the fact that food insecurity is a spectrum, the Cougar Food Pantry is accessible to all students on the College of Charleston campus. Our student volunteers can engage in our cause by working the pantry, organizing the items, and conducting donation drives. We hope that spreading knowledge about this issue and increasing student engagement will help to minimize the associated stigma and encourage positive change on our campus.
