Pete's Pantry, the OSU Institute of Technology's campus food pantry, is helping combat food insecurity for students, in turn promoting student success.
The program was established by the OSUIT Service Learning Committee and has been in operation since October 2019. It is available to students enrolled at OSUIT, including concurrent, GED and MPower, Green Country Technology Center and College of the Muscogee Nation.
There is no application process for students to take advantage of the pantry, simply show a student ID. There is no limit on items received, and students are welcome to visit as often as needed.
Through the partnership with the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, Pete's Pantry is able to supplement the pantry stock but is always accepting donations.
Monetary donations are also accepted through the OSU Foundation Arts and Sciences Excellence Fund for the OSUIT Pete's Pantry.
Pete's Pantry provides hands-on leadership experiences for students who are interested in volunteering.
Any student or employee may sign up. Opportunities include organizing and stocking the pantry, unloading pallets of food, checking donation expiration dates, helping sustain a clean and organized environment, cleaning the pantry location and serving students who visit.
Pete's Pantry is located in the Noble Center for Advancing Technology, Suite 100. It is open Mondays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday are by appointment only. Curbside pickup is available during the pandemic.
