The Knights Table Food Pantry: Fighting Food Insecurity One Student at a Time

QUEENS COLLEGE–On November 19, 2018, Queens College celebrated the opening of its first-ever food pantry: The Knights Table. Located in room LL29 of the Student Union, the pantry has made history this past year in its effort to tackle food insecurity amongst the student population. The pantry was a response to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s “No Student Goes Hungry Program” which ensures all CUNY and SUNY students in need have stigma-free access to food. New York is the first state in the U.S to have such an extensive program in place for combating hunger on college campuses, and QC is proud to champion such a noble venture.
