Grocery Bag Order Form

Grocery Bag Order Form

As we continue to stay dedicated to serving and supporting ALL students and postdocs who remain on-campus while also implementing changes in our operation to reduce health risk, this form will be used to place orders for pre-packaged Grocery Bags. Students will no longer have the availability to shop at the pantry Supermarket style.

Food Pantry Eligibility
While the Food Pantry is need-blind and does not require income information to be served, in order to be able to make our supplies lasts and meet the current high demand, we ask that you consider whether the Food Pantry is right for you.
  • The Food Pantry should be used by ANY University of Rochester student or postdoc who:
    • Is food insecure
    • May be facing a change in employment status
    • Is currently in quarantine or isolation.
  • While we understand that going to the grocery stores can be difficult for everyone at this time, if you have the financial means to do so, we ask that you consider the following options before using the Food Pantry:

Please check your food preferences from the options below. Check all types of food that you would be okay receiving in your bag. This is not a direct order form, but an indication of your preferences. Food is on a first-come, first-serve basis and we may not have all foods below. However, we will try our best not to put food in your grocery bag that you did not check as preferred. Please note that all foods in *asterisks* are currently out of stock, and we are working on reordering them soon.

The following candy and nuts have been graciously donated by the The Common Market. Based on your preference, each grocery bag will contain of the following. All items have been packaged and handled in a facility that also handles nuts - if you have a severe nut allergy, we highly recommend you do not request any from this section.

Toiletries are limited due to donations and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. You may check all that you preference, but may only receive one or two items (if any are available).
