Anoka-Ramsey opens food pantry for students
March 16, 2023
Anoka-Ramsey Community College will open an on-campus food pantry in Coon Rapids Monday, March 20, 2023.
The pantry will provide free food items to Anoka-Ramsey students. Students can visit as often as they want and get produce, meat, dairy and non-perishable items.
“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.
