So far, we are currently working on getting public awareness and support, and building corporate/private partnership. It's a slow and steady process. We are yet to apply for any grant.
We have several plans and ideas coming for next semester :
1. Create awareness regarding the food pantry by reaching out to residential colleges and faculties. By this, we aim to gain more support. Also, to seek more volunteers and future committee member as most of us right now are final year students. Media outreach is important too.
2. Form more private and corporate partnerships. This include more grocery chains company, NGOs, and other businesses.
3. Apply for grant. We'll begin by looking for any available grant within the university itself, and then reach out to foundations or governmental agency.
Besides that, some physical labor like running the pantry itself.
Lotsa' work but hey this is exciting nonetheless 🙂
P.S. This also means we need help in term of constructive advice and guidance. Do reach out to us if you feel you can help in any way. It doesn't mean you have to join as volunteers or members.
