In Wooster, the Buck-I-Eat program was inspired by members of the College FFA service committee with a two-fold mission: 1.) to ensure that no buckeye goes hungry and 2.) to promote healthy eating patterns. All students are eligible to participate (no application or appointment) at the self-service food pantry located at Student Success Services (128 Skou Hall). The Buck-I-Eat food pantry is maintained by generous donations from employees and students of non-perishable food and personal hygiene items as well as monetary donations to the Buck-I-EAT development fund (315953).
