The Birdfeeder is a client-choice food pantry created to help meet the basic needs of all Roadrunners. We understand college is stressful enough without worrying about where your next meal is coming from – this is where the Birdfeeder comes in to ensure students can focus on academics.

If your cabinets are a little empty, you're skipping meals or otherwise stressed about food, the Birdfeeder has resources to help.  The Birdfeeder provides supplemental support;  we do not provide all the food and supplies you will need for one week. Our goal is to reduce your grocery bill and help ensure you, as a student, are receiving the nutrition needed to be successful inside the classroom.

 

The Birdfeeder does not receive any funds from Dalton State to operate. The pantry is completely donation based. With more and more students utilizing this campus resource, we must continue to seek support from our various donors. There are many ways that you can help give back and support the pantry. Click on one of the links below to learn how you can help us meet the basic needs of a Roadrunner. 

Thank you to all donors. We could not do this without your support. 

To make a monetary donation, click Give Now and designate your gift to the "Birdfeeder."

Financial contributions to the Birdfeeder are tax deductible as allowed by law. Please consult your tax advisor for details.
