Campus surveys were done last year and a significant number of our students reported that food insecurity is or has been an issue for them while on campus.  they stated that it has impacted their ability to study and do well on exams.  For this reason "The Store" established and any student can come and get groceries and personal items that they need.  "The Store" is located in the Village gazebo area (1401 Dana Avenue).  The current hours are Fridays from 3-5 pm but if other times are needed, the student can email thestore@xavier.edu  (see attached flyer for this weeks holiday hours and more information)
