Now Open - The Feed Food Pantries for Students

Food is important! The Feed Can Help.
The Feed at Vol State seeks to alleviate the barriers and challenges associated with food insecurity and hunger so that students can remain in school, and ultimately, earn their degrees. It could be called a food pantry or a food bank. The important point is that The Feed is open to all Vol State students. It is operated at all four Vol State campuses.
The Feed is stocked with non-perishable food items and personal hygiene items. All current students are welcome to use The Feed and must present their Student ID at each visit. Students are able to use The Feed as often as needed. The Feed operates on the honor system. Students will be asked to fill out a brief registration form with basic information, but it is not necessary to prove eligibility.
You can get involved, even if you don’t need help.
The Feed accepts donations of non-perishable food items and personal hygiene items. You can find The Feed permanent donation bins in the Wood Campus Center, Ramer building, Thigpen Library, and the SRB Humanities building on the Gallatin campus and in the lobbies of CHEC, Livingston and Highland Crest campuses. Monetary donations are accepted through the Vol State Foundation Office. We need staffing assistance sorting donated items, tracking inventory, and collecting donated items. If you would like to help, contact us!
The hours are 8am to 5pm Monday through Thursday and 8am to 2pm on Friday for the Gallatin campus location. Other campuses may have different hours- check at the front desk for details.
The schedule changes based on the academic calendar and availability of volunteers. Like the Vol State Facebook at www.facebook.com/volstate page to stay current with hours of operation.

The Feed is located in the Ramer Building, Room 151, next to the Veterans Affairs and Adult Learners Office on the Gallatin campus. Please see the front desks at CHEC, Livingston and Highland Crest campuses for help at those locations. Email: TheFeed@volstate.edu
