The food pantry at Owens Community College in Findlay is getting a good response. Angie McGinnis is the office manager for the office of advising and tells the Courier nearly 50 people used the service on October 4. The pantry is open to students the first and third Tuesday of every month. The pantry will be open tomorrow from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Education Center on campus.
McGinnis tells the newspaper she wants to have a more permanent location for the pantry in the future. It currently operates out of a conference room. McGinnis says the Toledo campus has a setup that looks more like a store. She’s also working to get a freezer and refrigerator for the pantry.
McGinnis says the pantry is a big benefit for students. She adds, “Even if it saves them $20 or $30 at the grocery store, they can use it for gas. We want to try to fill the gap if they are missing out on possible income if they’re going to school.” said.
