The on-campus food pantry is a permanent location on campus which stores food and grocery items, personal care products, household paper products, dairy products, frozen foods, and some fresh produce. The Pantry at Ithaca College is located in the DeMotte room which is located on the lower level of the Egbert Hall/Campus Center building. For the Fall 2020 semester, it can be accessed from the Information Desk in the Campus Center.
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. Starting September 7 the Campus Center open hours are Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 7:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm.
All members of the campus community can utilize the pantry by stopping by the information desk. Shoppers should bring their IC ID with them. You will be asked to stop at a table near the information desk (placed away for the safety of you and the staff at the desk), to show your ID, and give your name to the information desk staff person. They will then let you know how to access the pantry. You will be provided with gloves and with a sanitizing wipe that you should use to wipe down any surfaces you touch in the pantry.
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. Shoppers should bring their own reusable grocery bag (limited plastic bags are available).
The pantry will remain open as long as we are able to continue to keep it stocked. We ask that shoppers are responsible and respectful and take only what they need and will use in a short period of time. Shoppers also should have completed the Community Agreement and be participating regularly in the campus-sponsored COVID testing program.
