With nearly one-third of university students nationally food insecure, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls recently opened Freddy’s Pantry in Rodli Hall to help provide grab-and-go foods for hungry students.
Freddy’s Pantry in 268 Rodli Hall opened January 10th. The nearly 14-by-18 foot pantry has insulated bags and currently has tables with breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack foods and personal hygiene items students may need.
It is open from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.
The River Falls Community Food Pantry donated the food to start up Freddy’s Pantry.
Financial donations are needed to finish the shelving in Freddy’s Pantry and to help provide needed items. The UW-River Falls Foundation has set up a donation site.
