The Red Hawk Pantry is open to Montclair State University students, year-round, who might be facing food insecurity and gives them access to “shop” for food and health/personal care products.
According to Sonja Tillman, Coordinator of the Red Hawk Pantry, there have been thousands of visits to the Red Hawk Pantry since its opening. In addition to the funds raised by donors, alumni and campus partners have also donated food, toiletry and household items to the pantry. The monetary donations have allowed Tillman to purchase fresh food items, providing more options for the students in need. The donations also allow for the pantry to adapt to the changing needs of our student population.
