Current research shows that food pantries are unreliable, stigmatized, and do not empower students to create their own meals. Increasing financial aid, dining dollars, etc. are not viable options since they do not fundamentally address issues of food access and insecurity, and are not supported by Cornell administration. The efforts of 626 Thurston Ave, which currently provides only dried goods and snacks inadvertently exacerbate an invisible class divide, separating students who can afford Cornell Dining and Collegetown options from students who are willing to overcome stigma and accept “handouts”. Anabel’s believes in a three-pronged approach of affordability, on-campus access, and education in cooking for yourself in college.
