Student Health teams up with Appalachian Food Resource Hub

Student Health will be teaming up with the Appalachian Food Resource Hub. What is the Food Resource Hub you may ask? The Resource Food Hub is a place where students can go if they are in need of food, warm clothing, toiletry items, and even school supplies. They are located in East Hall and students would need to make an appointment before going. But EVEN better yet, we will be keeping a few food bags here at Student Health for the immediate student need. The food bags will be kept in Radiology when you need them.
