What we do:

The Huskies Food Pantry supports learning, wellness, and student retention by providing nutritious options for St. Cloud State University students who are experiencing food insecurity. We know it’s hard to concentrate when you’re in a financial pinch and wondering how you are going to meet your basic needs. The Huskies Food Pantry is here to reduce your worries by providing you with food assistance so that you can focus on meeting your academic goals.

All current St. Cloud State students are welcome at the Huskies Food Pantry. While the Huskies Food Pantry is not able to serve as a grocery store or supply all of your daily/weekly nutrition, we are here to assist students in meeting their dietary needs in order to be best able to study, live, work and contribute to the campus and community to the fullest. We will be open for select hours and days during each semester as indicated below.

The Huskies Food Pantry is stocked by generous donations and purchases from our regional food bank partner Second Harvest Heartland. Pantry operations are housed in the division of Student Life & Development-Department of Campus Involvement and supported by volunteers from our campus community. Visit our Ways to Give page to learn how to contribute and for current donation needs.
