Our Mission

With help from students, staff, and a loving community, Ivyside Eats is taking action to reduce the student hunger rate through education, food drives, donations, volunteering, and community events. 

About Our Food Pantry

With continued rising costs, food insecurity in college students has become increasingly more profound.  To combat this, Ivyside Eats provides students various foods and hygienic products with complete anonymity. We do this with the hope that we can reduce the student hunger rate at Penn State Altoona.
