brandingPantry Dates

One hundred percent of the food, distributed to UIS students through the pantry, is provided by concerned individuals who offer food items or monetary donations. Because the pantry operates exclusively on these donations, food distribution events are based on the quantity of donated items received.

Look on campus announcements for each pantry event. If you need food sooner than the next pantry event, please visit the “Find a Pantry near You” page. Would you like to received early alerts for the next pantry day? Go to the contact page and add your email to the distribution list.  This is entirely confidential.
