What we do:

The Huskies Food Pantry supports learning, wellness, and student retention by providing free nutritious food options and self-care/hygiene items for St. Cloud State University students. All current St. Cloud State students are welcome. While the Huskies Food Pantry is not able to serve as a grocery store or supply enough to meet all weekly student needs, we are here to support students so they may fully contribute to the campus and community. We will be open during select days and hours as indicated below.

The Huskies Food Pantry is stocked by generous donations and purchases from our regional food bank partner Second Harvest Heartland. Our major partner is a 501c3 non-profit humanitarian organization, Hope for the Community. Pantry operations are housed in the Division of Student Affairs -Department of Campus Involvement and supported by student workers and volunteers from our campus community. Visit our Ways to Give page to learn how to contribute.

If you do not have your own reusable bag, the pantry can supply you with one bag at your first visit.

If your needs are greater than what the Huskies Food Pantry can provide, there are a variety of local resources within 1-2 miles of campus to assist you. Catholic Charities Emergency Services food shelf as well as the Salvation Army food pantry offer a variety of fresh and frozen foods. You may also be eligible for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. If you want to see if you may be eligible for SNAP benefits, take the SNAP Eligibility Screening Survey. The screening survey is available to current registered students and requires log-in with your Office 365 account (starid@go.minnstate.edu and StarID password)
