Due to a generous gift by Suffolk Executive EMBA alumni, Gene Lee and the Darden Restaurant Inc. the pantry became a reality. Other generous donors including Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Sodexo, and Pepsi Co. Since opening, the pantry has served over 500 unique students and staff have worked diligently to establish partnerships both on and off campus to help students who might need additional assistance.
