Ollie's Pantry

Ollie's Pantry

Methodist College is pleased to offer Ollie's Pantry for our students.  According to the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness, food insecurity is defined as the lack of reliable access to sufficient quantities of affordable, nutritious food. A national survey  released in October 2016 showed that 1 in 5 students at four-year schools qualified as having very low food security. The national survey also revealed that 32 percent of those surveyed believed that hunger or housing problems had an impact on their education. 

The food pantry was started in the spring 2017 semester and is managed by the Methodist College Office of Access, Support and Inclusion Services (OASIS).

Hours of Operation are TBD. Please contact Karli Johnson, Student Wellness Coordinator, by email or by calling 309-671-2187 (office W160)  if you need to make arrangements to pick up or donate items.
