In This Section

pantryRUN is the on-campus food pantry established to help students who are having difficulty affording or accessing enough nutritious food to stay focused on their studies and have an active lifestyle. pantryRUN welcomes all students (undergraduate, graduate, online) to visit the pantry as often as needed; up to once per week or a few times a semester.

pantryRUN is located in Paul Robeson Campus Center, room 226.

Is pantryRUN right for me?

Do you ever…
  • Worry that you do not have enough money for food?
  • Cut or skip a meal because you don't have enough money?
  • Find yourself unable to eat a balanced meal because of lack of money?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, pantryRUN may be right for you!

All you need is to bring your student ID during our open hours, and we will get you started.
