UWF launches first Argo Pantry food drive

University of West Florida | news@uwf.edu

The University of West Florida, in partnership with Manna Food Bank of Pensacola, is launching its first Argo Pantry food drive today, Feb. 19 with an open house from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. The open house will take place at the Dean of Students Office, Building 21, Room 130.

Beta tested in fall 2013, Argo Pantry exists to provide a campus pantry that will sustain currently enrolled UWF students with free, healthy food and basic personal care items for times of need. The UWF community will support Argo Pantry by hosting food drives, volunteering and donating items.

“As food insecurity is a growing trend among college students, we are working to support our students in the best way possible, while bringing the UWF community together for a good cause,” said Dr. Lusharon Wiley, director of Case Management Services in the Dean of Students Office.

The Argo Pantry food drive will be held Feb. 19 through March 9. Collection boxes are available in the Commons, Dean of Students Office, Recreation Facilities and the Library. For a complete list of items suggested for donation, visit http://uwf.edu/deanofstudents/argofoodpantry.cfm.
