The Rack: WVU Student Food Pantry
FRESH FOOD MONDAYS!
The Rack will now offer a limited supply of Fresh Foods (fruits and vegetables) on Monday during the summer term. We are open from 11am - 2pm on weekdays at our Mountainlair location. Come grab some fresh food, while supplies last.
NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS: Hours will begin AUGUST 24, 2020
The Rack provides non-perishable and perishable food items to all WVU students who are in need of assistance. Non-perishable items are readily available through WVUs Office of Student Engagement and Leadership during its business hours Monday-Friday 8:15am-4:45pm.
Earlier in April, more than 200 employees and friends of the Eberly College donated to The Rack
, to both honor the Class of 2020 and address food insecurity. The “20for20” fundraiser was organized by Lupe Davidson, the College’s director and academic coordinator for social justice affairs. She knew she wanted to address food insecurity – a key issue during this pandemic – and thought collective effort could have a greater impact. Davidson said, “We all know this academic year did not end the way that the Class of 2020 (or anyone) expected. My heart breaks for them. Yet, even in this moment we can find meaning in community, collective action and kindness.”
Davidson’s idea clearly resonated, as the campaign netted more than $11,000 for The Rack. Read more about this initiative HERE! On behalf of Student Engagement and Leadership, the Division of Student Life, and The Rack: WVU Student Food Pantry, we wanted to express our gratitude to the Eberly College Leadership, faculty, staff, and students for hosting the 20for20 Fundraising Initiative. This gift will allow us to continue serving our students through enhanced food offerings and services.
