Tackle Hunger Food Drive Success

Posted: January 2, 2014

The Tackle Hunger Food Drive held during the Ag Live Tailgate was a huge success. Special thank you to the Penn State Pullers for the use of their tractor. This years food donation of 500 donated items went to the Penn State Pride Pantry, a student run organization that helps students who are food insecure.

Pride Pantry is a student run organization that helps students who are food insecure. Local food banks can't provide for university students unless they are residents of the State College Area School District, referred by Community Help Centers or The Salvation Army, and are financially independent from their parents. Pride Pantry fills those gaps by providing a few meals a week to students who can't afford it.
