BGSU master’s student Lorenzo Zamora is one of three students to be nationally selected for the 2022 Nachman Justice Award. He received a $1,000 prize for his efforts to eradicate food insecurity on campus as a graduate assistant at Falcon Food Pantry. 

Zamora does the behind-the-scenes work and said it’s worth it if it means helping people when they need it. 

“Food insecurity is a really sad issue, but I don’t want anyone who is experiencing it to feel bleak,” Zamora said. “I’m there just to help if people need it. It’s nice for students to have, and I want them to feel welcome and to be happy when they’re at Falcon Food Pantry.” 

Zamora and others like him are fighting the stigma surrounding food insecurity on college campuses every day. 

Falcon Food Pantry is open Mondays and Thursdays from noon to 3 p.m. and Wednesdays from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Central Hall 109.
