The Food Pantry serves students at Stony Brook University that are at risk of food insecurity. They are an alternative food source to FSA-run campus dining spots like the Union Commons, pictured above. (KATE MUSTAKAS / THE STATESMAN)

Stony Brook Food Pantry focuses on wrong demographic

Christopher Leelum September 10, 2013
The new Stony Brook Food Pantry is not free food for the frugal. It is not satisfaction for the stingy, and it is not contentment for the cheapskate. Under 'Mission' on the pantry's website, you will find that it serves primarily to feed those "of Stony Brook University and the Stony Brook University community that are at risk of food insecurity." I am not denying the existence of said members of SBU and its community, but this pantry is simply in the wrong spot and solves the wrong problem.
