The food shelf, which opened in February 2013, is the work of partnership between faculty, staff, and students who originally came together as part of the Fighting Poverty at Augsburg special interest group. The food shelf is supported by A’viands, Campus Kitchen at Augsburg College, and the Thrivent Leadership Fellows.
