What's Been Happening?
After several years of organizing Students Overcoming Struggle to share their stories, Agape House started our own food pantry to provide relief and advocated for systemic change, leading to the creation of the Economic Crisis Response Team, San Diego Food Bank mobile distribution on campus, and the Associated Students Food Pantry. In 2017 Agape House sponsored to Associated Students a Resolution On Commitment To Fighting Food Insecurity And Expanding The Associated Students Food Pantry At San Diego State University. On April 19th, 2017 the AS council members unanimously voted in favor of expanding the AS Food Pantry. Agape House has been actively addressing and supporting students facing food insecurity and is proud that the university is starting to address this issue as well. The food pantry will be expanded to two days a week and will also begin to include sanitary and/or hygienic products. We are thankful for the various individuals and groups who have been working with us and the university on bringing light to the important problem of food insecurity among students and staff.
