MACF Grants Funds to MSU Food Pantry

Posted: Sep 07 2023


The Minot Area Community Foundation (MACF) has granted $6,000 from the Arnold I. Besserud Fund to Lutheran Campus Ministries for the Food Pantry at Minot State University.
 
The grant funding will be used to purchase much needed items for the food pantry.  
 
“The MSU Food Pantry serves students, staff, and faculty. We provide non-perishable food, frozen food, toiletries, and other household items to any member of the campus community who needs them” states Dr. Sophia Rammell, Lutheran Campus Ministry Board President.  “In order for students to succeed in their higher education endeavors, they need to have access to food and other essentials. Lutheran Campus Ministry is so grateful to partner with Minot Area Community Foundation to help address hunger on campus.”
 
The MSU Food Pantry is located inside the MSU Wellness Center, and individuals can access the food pantry during the Wellness Center hours, which is open year-round.  During the semester, the food pantry sees around 100 visits monthly.
 
“Organizations like this are essential to a student’s success in the classroom and eventually in their chosen career field. We are pleased to honor our donor’s wishes to provide the MSU community resources that will allow them to focus on their education and not where their next meal will come from” states Jason Zimmerman, President of the Minot Area Community Foundation.
 
Lutheran Campus Ministry is an affiliate member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. They are about building community, deepening faith, expanding minds, and inspiring services. In addition to the food pantry, they also provide fellowship and study, worship, “Tuesday Soup” – free meal on Tuesdays, as well as a number of other opportunities.
