Students in need of emergency food assistance should visit the pantry during open hours and a staff member, volunteer, or student worker will be there to assist. Students will be asked to show a photo ID, verify their University ID number, and fill out a short form. It is preferred students schedule an appointment to shop (campus username and password required to log in) ahead of time.
Students can shop once every two weeks, but if you are in an emergency and need to shop more than once every two weeks, please call or text 937-260-0167.
You can support the Food Pantry’s mission in a number of ways. You can purchase from our Amazon wish list, donate food and other items, provide financial contributions, or volunteer at the Pantry itself.
Are you interested in applying for other food assistance? You may be eligible for SNAP (food stamp) assistance from the State of Ohio. Check SNAP benefits eligibility.
The Raider Food Pantry is currently managed by the Office of Vice President for Student Affairs and coordinated by Mary Case, SAHE Graduate Assistant, and FFP Coordinator.
