Meet Our Volunteers

Accounting, Sophmore

I enjoy volunteering at the food pantry because it is a very rewarding experience. I am able to witness first hand how I can help people in need in my own community. I feel strongly that no one should go hungry and assistance can be provided to make it available to everyone in need!

I like spending time on campus and helping to fulfill a basic need. I appreciate that a resource such as the food pantry is available so I am happy to help keep it open.

First semester of pantry experience. I enjoy being a part of the food pantry because I have the opportunity to help those who are in need of food supplies and toiletry for their dorms or off campus apartments. I enjoy serving to the students and faculty because they all leave with a smile on their face.

Communication Disorders, Junior

Greetings to the New Paltz community. My name is Johanna Ferrer and I am a third-year student majoring in communication disorders with a minor in deaf studies. I chose to volunteer at the food pantry as a way to give back to the community. I am an off-campus student and the pantry has come in handy in times of need. So, as a way to give back, I decided to volunteer here for the Spring 2018 semester!

I enjoy being a part of the food pantry because it is a fantastic resource to those who need some extra food when they are hungry and are struggling to keep themselves fed. I am a part of the Hunger and Homelessness campaign for NYPIRG this semester so being able to volunteer at an actual place made to help feed the hungry is an awesome opportunity. The food pantry is also under-recognized on campus and I enjoy being able to help spread awareness about it.

Food is essential.
Buy a meal, save a life.
