Gibson said the new food bank that was launched just last week is already meeting the needs of some students who are facing low-income situations.
Qualifying students are required to fill out a brief application that asks for some information about the individual applicants' lives.
The food bank is located in the 5000 building on the school’s main campus.
To get the new program off the ground, staff and students collected more than 1,000 non-perishable items this past spring.
Also, a local church came on board and donated to the college’s efforts.
“The main goal is that we are trying to let our students know we not only care about education we care about the entire student.”
