This food pantry thing we have here for students, it is probably the best program I have heard of starting here. It is what the people need in order to keep their bodies healthy so that their minds can follow. If you seriously think there is nobody struggling here to keep their head above water, stop for a minute and look around you.
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.
