Food and Housing Resources
Feed the Pack Food Pantry
Located at 2221 Dunn Ave. in the Quad Commons, the Feed the Pack Food Pantry stocks food, household, and hygiene items. The Feed the Pack website has also assembled a list of community resources if you can’t make it to campus or the Feed the Pack Food Pantry is closed.
PACK Meal Share
Recognizing the scope of food insecurity on campus, Student Government led the way in advocating for a student-to-student meal sharing program and is pleased to announce a new partnership with University Dining for students facing short-term food insecurity. Through the donation of guest meals from student meal plans, a pool of meals has been established for students who find themselves temporarily without food options. These meals can be added to a student ID card to allow entry into Fountain, Clark, and Case (breakfast and lunch only) Dining Halls, creating easy and discrete access to meals at no cost. Visit the common Pack Essentials application to apply.
PACK Meal Scholarships
Full and partial meal plan scholarships may be available to students experiencing difficulty in paying for a semester meal plan. These meal plan scholarships are need-based, subject to financial aid considerations and provided by donors to the Division of Academic and Student Affairs. Visit the common Pack Essentials application to apply.
