Many college students stress about finding their next meal, a place to sleep, or keeping up with hygiene needs. Here at OSU, the Cowboy Family comes together so we can offer resources to help students meet their basic needs. This Giving Tuesday you can help support these efforts by donating to OSU's Food Insecurity Fund.
Your gift will support long-term solutions to food insecurity and basic needs on campus and ensure that systems and programs are created to eliminate food insecurity among all OSU students. Help OSU students in need this #GivingTuesday!
"If it wasn't for Pete's Pantry I would have gone hungry more than once. One cannot succeed in university on an empty stomach and the fear of being hungry and alone is so big that can make you question every decision you ever made that got you here. Pete's Pantry always had a door opened for me, butit was more than just a helping hand. It was the way employees did it. Treating us with dignity, respect, and discretion.... I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved from donors to staff, for the things you do for people you may never meet. Please know how much of a difference it makes in the lives of many students." - OSU International Student
Pete's Pantry organizes and takes donations from various departments, student organizations, and community partners; with a notable partnership with Our Daily Bread. Our Daily Bread is a local food and resource center working to end hunger by addressing the root causes in Payne County.

GivingTuesday was created as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Please consider giving $22 in honor of this year's #GivingTuesday.
Since the beginning of this semester, Pete’s Pantry has given away 467 meals and counting through Pete’s Eats, a collaboration with dining services to provide free lunches. Being a part of this Giving Tuesday goes beyond what’s inside the pantry.
