Today's college students face serious financial challenges. Many students find it difficult to support themselves while also paying for college. Hunger is a real problem for far too many of today's students. One issue they are faced with is food insecurity - not having reliable access to sufficient, nutritious food.
Commuter's Commodities is a food and supply pantry to help alleviate the financial burden of obtaining good quality food, small household goods, cleaning supplies and hygiene products. Our hope is that this will help our commuter students and students who may be in need.
We are a partner agency with The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri.
