Fargo, N.D., March 22 – Another food pantry has opened in the region: this one, named “Goods for the Herd”, is now open for all North Dakota State University students and employees in need.
The pantry is located at the NDSU Bookstore in the Memorial Union.
A 2019 survey showed more than one in three NDSU students has experienced food insecurity and one in two knew somebody who was food insecure. Individuals who are food insecure often skip meals to ensure they have enough food to last a week.
Nursing students are currently working to promote the new pantry, explain food insecurity and reduce existing biases.
