Food Pantry Spring Semester Hours and Volunteer Sign-Up!

By Karen Walls, January 22, 2023

The on-campus Food Pantry is now open and available to students, staff and faculty.  

The pantry hours will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:15 – 2:00pm and Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-6pm.   The pantry will be closed on Mondays for restocking and cleaning. Students, faculty or staff who are unable to access the pantry during these hours, or who would prefer to shop more privately can contact Karen Walls at to set up an alternate time. 

The on-campus food pantry is a permanent location on campus which offers food and grocery items, personal care products, household paper products, dairy products, frozen foods, and some fresh produce.  The food pantry is located on the lower level in Campus Center. To access this space on the lower level, you must use the staircase to the left of the Information Desk in the Campus Center. 

All members of the campus community can utilize the pantry by stopping by during open hours (there is no income information required to shop).  Shoppers should bring their IC ID with them.  You will be asked to check in once you arrive and then will be able to shop. Shoppers are limited to one bag of food per visit, but can visit as often as they need to in order to provide for their needs. 

Please bring your own reusable grocery bag. 

The pantry will remain open as long as we are able to have volunteers to help during the scheduled open times.  Faculty, staff and students are invited to volunteer by signing up here

We are always accepting donations of non-perishable items.  Non-perishable items (clean, unopened, unexpired) can be left at the Information Desk. 

We also need reusable bags! These can also be dropped off at the Information Desk.
