Despite the hoopla surrounding President Steve Currall's one-university plan, some pretty incredible things are happening over at the University of South Florida’s St. Petersburg campus.

On Monday, September 23, USFSP hosts a ribbon-cutting for its new student-driven food pantry called Support-A-Bull Market.

In an effort to assist students on the St. Pete campus, USFSP modeled its pantry after the Feed-A-Bull initiative at USF Tampa which has distributed over 24,000 pounds of food to students in need.

Support-A-Bull Market will “help fend off hunger for students living with food insecurity on and off-campus,” according to a social media post. The pantry will also collect and distribute non-perishable items and toiletries. The campus' hope is to raise awareness about food insecurity and encourage students to get involved in this issue. 

The ribbon-cutting ceremony is at 2 p.m. in the Student Life Center.
