What is it? 

The Yellowjacket Food Pantry is a great resource to help students make ends meet! The purpose of the food pantry is to discreetly provide supplemental food and other necessities to students free of charge.

Where is it?

The Yellowjacket Pantry is currently located on the first floor of Swenson Hall (SWEN 1080).

The fall hours are:

Mondays 12 p .m. - 1 p.m.

Tuesdays 11 a.m. - 12 p.m and 4 p.m - 5:30 p.m.

Wednesdays 12p.m. - 1 p.m. and 4 p.m - 5:30 p.m.

Thursdays 11 a.m - 12 p.m.

Fridays 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. and 3 p.m - 4 p.m.

How does it work?

Request forms are located outside of the pantry and can be completed any time during open hours and left in the drop-box. You can return later to pick up (orders can also very often be picked up at the time of request or same day!) Generally, requests can be placed twice per week. Our goal is to provide two nutritionally balanced meals per request (up to 4 meals per week). Our stock varies depending on what has been contributed.

  • On your first visit, we'll provide a little tour and share how the process works
  • Fill out REQUEST FORMS ANYTIME - Students may fill out a request form up to twice a week
  • Complete all the required fields on the form and make your food requests
  • Place the request form in the drop-box
  • We'll fill the order and have it ready for pick up as soon as possible

  • Students currently enrolled in classes

  • The Pantry is also open to all students during school breaks, etc., when dining services is closed
