Record Broken for Largest Single-Week Donation to Food Pantry 

Stony Brook’s Division of Finance & Administration (F&A) recently broke the largest single-week record for food donated to the university’s on-campus Food Pantry. Previously set at 269 pounds, the division participated in the “Adopt a Week” program during Valentine’s Day week and was able to collect an astonishing 700 pounds.

“There are members of our Stony Brook community experiencing real food insecurity,” stated Jed Shivers, senior vice president for Finance & Administration. “This isn’t surprising given that just over 1 in 10 New York households experience food insecurity, so we were delighted to partner with the Food Pantry to benefit students, faculty and staff here on campus.”
