A Helping Paw

Tennessee State University students have a new option when the cupboards run bare. This month the Division of Student Affairs has opened a food charity for all TSU students called the Tiger Pantry. Arlene Philips ,Administrative assistant to the president, is the coordinator of this charity and said in an interview that she feels this is the most organized version of a campus food charity yet.

A student would be able to go online, place an order, and the Tiger Pantry will fill that order and have it waiting to be picked up in the Gentry Center. Students can order Non perishable food items as well as hygiene products. Members of TSU’s Pep Club help operate the charity by volunteering.

One student , freshman Deion Pitts, is planning to use the food charity as soon as it opens. Pitts said in an interview “Food, is kind of hard to come by, so I think the free food will definitely help.” He resides in campus dormitory Watson Hall and says his refrigerator is running bare.
