Food and Hygiene Pantry System
The Office of Student Life is proud to combat and help relieve the food and basic supply anxiety felt by students on our campus through our Food and Hygiene Pantry system. The pantry directly dispenses food, beverages, toiletries and other supplies to students who need them. Additionally, this program connects with and educates students about other sources of food, supplies, shelter and emergency funding.
Our overarching goal is to help as many students as possible thrive in their academic pursuits with as little anxiety and fear about meeting the basic necessities as possible.
How to Access the Food and Hygiene Pantry
During normal campus operations, the Food and Hygiene Pantry has its main location in the Office of Student Life in Cascade 418; as well as a satellite pantry at the front desk of the Health Education Center.
Due to COVID-19, our pantry system is operating entirely on a curbside pick-up model. Selected days are announced via student email and Canvas. Students must fill out and submit a Pick-Up Day order form so that staff can create a customized bag for pick up. Please note that this form can only be submitted near scheduled pick-up days.
How to Contribute to the Food and Hygiene Pantry
During normal campus operations, you can either donate items at our locations or purchase items from our Amazon Wishlist and have them sent directly to the Office of Student Life.
Due to COVID-19, we encourage you to donate by purchasing items from our Amazon Wishlist and having them sent to the Office of Student Life.
If you have supplies you must drop off in person, we are also coordinating limited curbside donation days where you can drop off supplies on campus with appropriate masks and precautions. Please email Walter Lutsch for information on the next curbside donation day.
