Paws' Pantry

How it works

At your first visit of the academic year, we will ask you to complete a simple client form, which asks for general personal and demographic information. At each following visit, we will ask for your CrimsonCard.

You can visit the pantry once per week. Appointments are required to be made 24 hours in advance by filling out an online form. Each appointment will allow 15 minutes for shopping. The appointment forms open on Fridays at 10 a.m. and close 24 hours before the pantry opens depending on which day you plan to shop.

Every effort will be made to provide appointments for those with food insecurity. If you are unable to make an appointment, please email and a one-time emergency pre-packaged food bag will be provided.

Every dollar counts

We couldn’t operate Paws’ Pantry without our generous donors. They ensure the pantry and closet are full of food and clothing items to help you meet your basic needs. Every donation—monetary or in-kind—goes directly to supporting the operations of these services and supporting thousands of students, faculty, and staff each year. 

Consider making your gift today.

In-kind pantry donations

If you want to help a fellow Jag with their next meal, we take in-kind donations to Paws’ Pantry. You can drop off nonperishable food items and personal hygiene products in the orange bins outside of Campus Center 130. Your donation can make a world of difference for a fellow Jag.
