CITY COLLEGE–The late afternoon sunlight splashed through the doorway of the food pantry in the North Academic Center as Cris G. headed in. “It is cool that students got involved to start the pantry. I guess it shows just how much can happen when you really care about an issue,” he said.

Student members of NYPIRG, The New York Public Interest Research Group, and others from the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership, started the food pantry two years ago.
