The ASCC and Penguin Pantry have launched a pilot program called, “The Snack Shack.”
The Snack Shack is located in PUB 163, also known to some as the club locker room. As the name implies it will be a place were all students can come by and grab a snack. For the rest of this quarter they will be open on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
ASCC Finance Director, Shalana Marshall, has been working the Tuesday morning shift and said that people have been surprised there was even a window there, but it seems to be a great spot. At first the ASCC and Penguin Pantry considered moving the entire spot to a more central location but decided on having The Snack Shack open on the mornings the pantry is closed.
If the pilot program shows that there is a need for this service, students could see it become a permanent program next year. Director of Student Life, Sarah Gruhler, said that in order to be successful, the program will not only have to show a need but also keep up the ability to provide snacks.
“Just like The Penguin Pantry is for any student, The Snack Shack is for anyone as well,” Gruhler said.
