The University Libraries is collecting non-perishable food and toiletry items for Missouri State’s Bear Pantry. A collection bin is set up in the Meyer Library Lobby.
The Bear Pantry’s most-needed items include deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, laundry detergent, toilet paper, dish soap, razors, dry or canned beans, rice, pasta, cereal, canned fruit, canned vegetables, granola bars, boxed dinner and canned meat.
Established in 2019, the Bear Pantry supports MSU students or staff members facing food insecurity. The pantry is run by student workers and graduate assistants. Volunteer opportunities are also available.
