Shannon added that the Student Food and Resource Center is open to all students. “There are no criteria to access the resources,” she said. “Visitors can select their own items and access as much as needed for their whole family.”
The center also has plans to host community partners and resources throughout the semester, including SNAP benefit sign-up.
Shannon and Nicole Bietz, Inver Hills counselor, envision having the Student Food and Resource Center staffed and led by student employees.
“We are currently hiring,” Shannon said. “We are encouraging students to apply online.”
