We had a great meeting last night at the Bonine House!
We had 3 great presentations- One from the Underground Railroad of Cass County, Legal Services and SMC's Roadrunner food pantry. The winner is...the food pantry. This is a recent addition, they started in February when they learned students were not eating properly. To date most donations are from the professors and staff and the pantry is run by students.
