An MVC Cares Initiative
Missouri Valley College, in an effort to fight Food Insecurities (FI), has established Thor’s Pantry to help support students who are hungry. Recent studies estimate that between 30 to 50 percent of college students experience FI. The lack of food or FI among students has also been linked as a cause to increased mental health concerns, physical health concerns, and contributes to lower academic success and nonretention.
Thor’s Pantry is available to all students currently enrolled at Missouri Valley College. There are no restrictions on who can benefit from Thor’s Pantry other than they must be enrolled either full-time or part-time.
Behind MacDonald Hall next to the Morris Experimental Theater (Redman Street)
Hours of Operation
Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
(Students must schedule an appointment during the hours of operation). In cases of emergency or great need, Thor’s Pantry may be requested and opened outside of normal hours.
How to Schedule a Time
