The SCSU Food Pantry has established an ongoing partnership with Julia’s Bakery in Orange to provide “day-old” baked goods to students.
Every Monday before closing, Julia’s donates bagels, muffins, scones, donuts, stuffed breads, and quiches that students can pick up on Tuesdays starting at 9 a.m. By the end of day on a recent Tuesday, the pantry’s supply of pastries had already been picked up by students.
“The students loved what was offered and [were] truly appreciative of the donation,” said food pantry director Sue Zarnowski.
The food pantry is located in the rear of the Wintergreen Building. It is open to all undergraduate and graduate student shoppers this summer Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Opened in October 2020, the food pantry recently received a $5,000 donation from Stop & Shop and continues to support students with food insecurity and provide basic human necessities. The pantry is always looking for donations and is currently in need of pasta sauce, cereal, snacks, and hygiene products.
