Wright State University's Raider Food Pantry, a need-based pantry for the Wright State and Fairborn community, is coordinated through the Office of Vice Provost for Student Affairs. It is made possible by the generosity of Wright State students, faculty, staff, the local community, and the dedicated service of its staff and volunteers.


The Wright State University Raider Food Pantry provides need-based food and referrals primarily to students, helping them to stay in school and meet their educational goal. The pantry is also dedicated to assisting faculty, staff, and community members in need of food and referrals in order to relieve food insecurities and their underlying causes in the WSU and Fairborn community.


The Wright State University Raider Food Pantry provides Wright State students, faculty, and staff, as well as Fairborn residents (45324 zip code), with a few days worth of groceries. Proof of residency is required for Fairborn residents. For questions, contact the food pantry at or call 937-775-2617.

Anyone needing longer-term food assistance will also be given contact information for pantries near campus and/or information about long-term food assistance programs.
