"Westchester County Business Journal" featured Pace University in "Pace Award for Mobile Food Pantry"

Pace University was honored by Feeding Westchester at its recent annual conference for being the first to establish a Feeding Westchester Mobile Food Pantry on a college campus in Westchester.

In its quest to address food insecurity issues, Pace offers additional and affordable nutrition to students, faculty, staff, and community members through the food pantry. Since the pantry opened on campus last year, there has been a steady increase in attendance with the most recent event attracting more than 200 participants.

The award also recognized Pace for its innovation by creating a stigma-free environment with the university’s radio station WPAW, composting over-ripe produce at the campus’ nature center and using additional fruit at Pace Fit, the university’s smoothie shop.

"Inside Chappaqua" featured Pace University in "Feeding Westchester Celebrates 30th Anniversary & Launches Mobile Food Pantry in Partnership with Pace University This Fall"

It’s been a busy fall for Elmsford-based nonprofit Feeding Westchester (formerly known as the Food Bank for Westchester). The non-profit just celebrated 30 years with their fundraiser “An Evening in Good Taste” this past October. The event featured cocktails and cuisine from more than 30 Westchester-based chefs including local favorite Beau Widener, the Executive Chef at Crabtree’s Kittle House Restaurant & Inn.

This fall also saw the introduction of a new Mobile Food Pantry in partnership with Pace University. Pace President Marvin Krislov attended the first mobile food pantry event on September 27 and spoke with student volunteers who participated by passing out produce to students and local residents.

Noelani Rivera, a first-year student at Pace said, “It was a really great experience to be able to help others, especially people so closely tied to our community.”

Tyler Kalahar, program coordinator at Pace’s Center for Community Action and Research in the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, said the new mobile food pantry was in keeping with Pace University’s position as a leader in economic mobility in higher education. “Addressing hunger with the mobile food pantry program is simply another way to give students, particularly our first generation and students from low-income families, the resources they need to succeed in college,” Kalahar explained.

The mobile pantry visited the Pace campus on Halloween and November 27th. The next visit is scheduled for December 13th from 12:30-2:30pm. The program hopes to provide nourishing, stigma-free food in a location that is accessible to both students and the wider Westchester community.
