Wright State University's Raider Food Pantry, an emergency pantry for the Dayton 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 volunteer staff.


The Wright State University Raider Food Pantry provides emergency food and referrals primarily to students in times of need 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 emergency food and referrals in order to relieve food insecurities and their underlying causes in the Dayton community. 


The Wright State University Raider Food Pantry will provide anyone in need with a few days of emergency meals. Students should bring their Wright 1 Card. For questions, contact the food pantry at or (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.

Food pantry volunteers may also refer pantry clients to campus or community programs and agencies that can assist with other needs they may have. The Raider Food Pantry cannot guarantee the quality of or qualification for any outside programs or services.
