Transitions Food Pantry
What is Transitions?
The Transitions Food Pantry serves members of the Goodwin College community and is managed by a team of faculty, staff, and students.
As food prices continue to rise, unemployment and underemployment rates increase — a toxic combination of pressures. Our students are in school because they are seeking to enhance their employment prospects. Many come to us after having lost their jobs, seeking to retrain. For these students, their college years are a time of transition, which can include phases of acute need, and even homelessness.
According to FoodShare income guidelines, approximately 1,000 students and families may be eligible for food assistance.
