In early March 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued a letter to all colleges and universities across the nation regarding concerns of discrimination and bias related to the global pandemic of COVID-19, aka "coronavirus." The letter cites increased reports regarding stereotyping, harassment, and bullying directed towards students and faculty perceived to be of Chinese-American or, more generally, Asian descent.

Ithaca College realizes that these difficult times have made it challenging for our community members to make ends meet and to access nutritious food.  To help with that, we have come up with a way to keep the On-Campus Food Pantry open, accessible, and as safe as possible.

The pantry will remain accessible during the hours that the Campus Center is open Tuesdays through Sundays. The Pantry will be closed on Mondays to allow us time to restock and do a thorough cleaning of the space.  Right now the Campus Center open hours are Monday – Friday from 8am – 6:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 am – 6:30 pm.
