UMass-Boston will open on-campus food pantry

The University of Massachusetts Boston will open an on-campus food pantry in an effort to help students who cannot afford to buy food. Boston.com says the effort is being launched by the college’s Office of Urban and Off-Campus Support Services, which serves about 70 students. More than 10 percent of them have trouble affording food and more than 45 percent are either homeless or on the verge of homelessness, the office says.
