Support OHIO students struggling with food insecurity

Why Give?

It's hard to learn when you're hungry.

When Ohio University participated in a national basic needs study in 2017, it found that 29 percent of its undergraduate students had low or very low food security. They were skipping meals, cutting back portion sizes, or not eating at all because they weren't able to afford food.

Hunger can lead to a range of negative outcomes for students, from failing grades and depression to homelessness and dropping out of college. Recognizing this urgent need, OHIO opened its Baker Center Food Pantry in April 2017. The demand for food was startling and motivated the Division of Student Affairs to make this effort and other student basic needs initiatives a priority. In the first six weeks of the fall 2018 semester, more than 1,000 pounds of food have been donated to the pantry and distributed to our campus community.

Your gift to OHIO’s Student Affairs Food Pantry Support Fund means students dealing with food insecurity get to worry about tough professors and late night study sessions - not hunger.
