Student food bank serves up healthy, delicious options

Sandi Rose credits the success of the Iona Campus Food Bank to its donors and volunteers.

The food bank is open one day a week during the summer, but even with reduced hours, she said more than 80 students utilize the service.

“Money is tight for students and even if you have enough for tuition and books, you may not have enough for food,” Rose said, director of the Iona Campus Food Bank. “It’s so important for their education and their brain to be well fed.”
