ODU's First Food Pantry!

October 27, 2016

IGNITE Pantry is a new food pantry serving ODU students, faculty, and staff in need.

 

In 2015, IGNITE Norfolk, a church and campus ministry at ODU, began working with ODU to investigate the issue of food insecurity on ODU’s campus.  Through a survey, it was discovered that roughly one in every four students struggles with food insecurity.  This means that at some point throughout the week, they are unsure of where they will receive their next meal.

 

In August of 2016, IGNITE and ODU opened IGNITE Pantry as a solution to fight food insecurity on campus. Each week they provide at least three to four meals to those in need.  

 

IGNITE Pantry is located in the IGNITE Norfolk building at 1338 W 49th St (across from the Deihn building).  It is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 3-7PM.  Food distribution is open to all students, faculty, and staff with a valid ODU ID.
