#OPINION The World Food Programme (WFP) needs continued funding from billionaire investors such as Elon Musk. However, as the cost of addressing world hunger increases, the WFP must do a better job of communicating specific spending plans to convince donors.

The new Stony Brook Food Pantry is not free food for the frugal. It is not satisfaction for the stingy, and it is not contentment for the cheapskate. Under ‘Mission’ on the pantry’s website, you will find that it serves primarily to feed those “of Stony Brook University and the Stony Brook University community that are at risk of food insecurity.” I am not denying the existence of said members of SBU and its community, but this pantry is simply in the wrong spot and solves the wrong problem.
