Panhellenic Organizations Help To Combat Food Insecurity On Campus

Hundreds of cans and nonperishable food products line the shelves in a small room in the back corner of the Tate Student Center’s first floor. What people walking through the building might not realize is that inside that tiny room, workers are providing food to hungry University of Georgia students.

Kara Rex, the advisor to the Panhellenic Council, spends every Monday through Friday overseeing the daily operations of the UGA Food Pantry, a food pantry that provides students with food at no cost, according to the organization’s website

When she accepted her position, Rex was unaware of the impact her work would have on the UGA campus. 

“When I started my job in June of 2020… I witnessed campus partners come together to provide meal kits from the pantry to students who remained in Athens, but may not have had access to groceries due to COVID-19,” Rex said.

“Despite many challenges the world was facing, the pantry was able to fulfill their mission of assisting students in need,” Rex added.
