About the Hawkeye Student Food Pantry

The Hawkeye Student Food Pantry was first launched by Joyce Levingston (Hawkeye Alumni and Community Member). Once established, it was supported by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society students. They were inspired by the growing awareness of student food insecurities shown and documented throughout their service-learning classes from Spring 2018 to Spring 2020.

Beginning in May 2020, the Hawkeye Student Food Pantry is supported through distributions from the Northeast Iowa Food Bank, donations from local supporters, gifts to the Foundation's Student Emergency Fund, and individual donations of non-expired food.
