BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag/Box) - The Food Pantry provides quite a bit of food to choose from. IC will provide some boxes available on a first-come, first-served basis. However, please feel free to bring your own large, sturdy bags or boxes. Short term parking is also available near the mobile pantry and transportation from N-Lot will be available to any on-campus addresses (including Circles Apartments).
