Every week, we assemble pantry bags and distribute them to students across campus. We have a mission to fight food insecurity for our students and to brighten people’s days. If you are in need of a pantry bag or some extra support, do not hesitate to reach out! We’re here to help. If you’d like to support us in our mission, we’d appreciate extra hands in serving those around us!

We will be on both Midtown and Westside campuses from 3:30-4:30 on Tuesdays during the Fall Semester. For updates on locations and any changes, please follow us on Instagram!
