The SHOP was created by a group of students looking to give back to their community. Our mission is to engage with anti-hunger advocates and serve the student population by increasing hunger awareness and food security. The SHOP is run by volunteers and the food is obtained through donations. Students may come in and pick-up food without showing any ID, which makes this service completely anonymous.
This organization has no affiliations.
