- Have a food pantry, partnership with a food bank, or some type of food distribution system on campus available to students.
- Have a designated staff person on campus to educate students on SNAP and other public services aimed to reduce food insecurity.
- Provide emergency funds to assist students who may be experiencing basic needs insecurity.
- Have a taskforce dedicated to addressing food insecurity concerns.
- Host or participates in at least one hunger awareness event each year.
About Anoka-Ramsey’s Campus Food Pantry
“Our food pantry is open to all students with no questions asked,” says Joyce Traczyk, Coordinator of Student Engagement & Activities at Anoka-Ramsey’s Coon Rapids Campus. “Over 37% of college students have experienced food insecurity, meaning they do not have a steady source of food or cannot afford to feed themselves or their families. It is our goal that with our partnership with HOPE for the Community, Anoka-Ramsey Community College will be a hunger-free campus.”
Anoka-Ramsey's Food Pantry is provided in partnership with 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization HOPE for the Community. HOPE for the Community is supported by Second Harvest Heartland, a local nonprofit hunger-relief organization.
