Volunteering at the UW Pantry
WhenWednesday, Feb. 26, 2020, 12 – 1 p.m.

The Whole U is honored to help staff the UW Pantry with weekly, lunch-time volunteers on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from noon to 1:00 p.m.!

Here's how it works:

From noon to 1:00 p.m. on each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday during Winter quarter, 2 Whole U volunteers will help staff the UW Pantry at Poplar Hall.
Pantry staff will briefly train you on location. How you spend the hour will depend on pantry need. Volunteers will help sort donations, check out shoppers, along with other miscellaneous tasks. Some pantry days are slower than other. Grab your lunch and head to the UW Pantry to help for an hour and meet some fellow huskies!
On arrival at the pantry, introduce yourself and let staff know that you are a Whole U volunteer.
The pantry is part of UW's Any Hungry Husky program which aims to mitigate the social and academic effects of campus food insecurity. By providing students, staff, and faculty with access to shelf-stable, non-perishable goods and community resources at no cost, the program aims to lessen the financial burden of purchasing food and supplement nutritional needs.

In the US, an estimated 15-25 percent of college students do not get enough food due to affordability and other costs associated with a college education. Food insecurity negatively affects physical, mental and emotional health, making it difficult for people to perform well at school and work. Any Hungry Husky relieves this issue by providing nutritious, wholesome food to anyone in the UW community. The Whole U is honored to help staff the pantry with weekly, lunch-time volunteers!
