SNAP Information


Address food insecurity within our student community by establishing and operating an on-campus food pantry to provide food, toiletry items, and related consumer programming.


We envision a community where student success is not hindered by lack of food or access to consumer education.


 We value service, inclusion, opportunity, and human dignity.

  • We provide opportunity for service by students, for students.
  • We provide ethnic and culturally relevant foods.
  • We deliver services in a discreet and accessible location.
