About the Food Pantry
The Food Pantry is a University of Rochester initiative dedicated to tackling the rising issue of student food insecurity on campus. According to the Education Advisory Board (EAB), students are food insecure when they face a lack of nutrition in their diet or are unsure where their next meal will come from. It is undeniable that students who do not have to focus on financial stress and food insecurity do better in school. We firmly believe that no one, including college students, should have to worry about where their next meal is coming from.
In the past, we have operated a pilot food program pantry through our Winter and Summer Stay programs. We are happy to announce that we are expanding this work and are now operating a food pantry year-long. Our mission is to meet the necessary food and personal care needs of our Arts, Science & Engineering undergraduate and graduate students so that they can focus on their college experience.
