Benny Panty’s Mission:

We recognize that poverty is often a barrier for students who are striving to obtain a certification or degree in higher education. One of the many hardships associated with poverty is food insecurity – the lack of access to enough safe and nutritious food. We believe that by alleviating food insecurity where it may exist, we empower our student community to focus on learning and discovery, thereby removing a significant barrier to persistence.

Goals:

Create a food-secure community by offering emergency assistance of nutritious food to the Idaho State community

Educate the Idaho State community about issues related to poverty and hunger

Cultivate a culture of service-minded leadership within the ISU student community
