College life is hard and any shortage of money can make it harder. When you have to worry about what you're going to eat, how can you study? The Edinboro on-campus food pantry is designed to alleviate some of these possible problems.

The Edinboro on-campus food pantry is taking donations on Monday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. These donations will be taken through the student health services lobby in McNerney Hall at 300 Scotland Road. According to a recent university email, they're looking for the following items:  

— Oatmeal 

— Dried or canned fruit 

— Canned soup or chili 

— Canned pasta 

— Canned tuna, chicken or other meat 

— Microwavable noodles or rice 

— Toilet paper 

— Hand soap 

— Body wash 

— Shampoo and conditioner 

— Toothpaste 

— Deodorant 

— Any other non-perishable food items

If assistance is needed, you can reach someone at (814) 732-2743. According to the event flyer, this is being labeled a "reopening" of the on-campus food pantry.
