Who We Are
The Support-A-Bull Food Pantry was established on the Sarasota-Manatee campus in the spring of 2020 and is now situated in the Student Services area. Partnering with All Faiths Food Bank, the pantry provides currently enrolled students with emergency food assistance and toiletry items. The mission of the pantry is to address food insecurity by providing supplemental food, nutrition education and resources to any student in need – whatever their situation – in order to ensure their academic success at USF.
What We Do
If a student is hungry, it is hard for them to focus on their studies. The Support-A-Bull Food Pantry was founded to reduce the anxieties of food hardship and hunger among our students in need with free and unlimited access to food, as well as toiletry items.
Students can drop by and select their groceries or confidentially order online and pick up their orders. The pantry, located in SMC C144, is open Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. and Saturday between 7:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Our goal is to make sure no USF student has to choose between buying textbooks or groceries so no one goes hungry or halts their education.
Your generous financial support of the Support-A-Bull Food Pantry will help students in need to continue to focus on their studies at USF instead of worrying about their next meal. Your gifts will help ensure the pantry is stocked with various nutritious offerings.
Donations of food and toiletry items are welcome during any business day at the Main Rotunda desk. Food contributions must be non-perishable and free of dents, cannot be expired or opened, and must be in original packaging/labeling.
We are grateful for your support of the Support-A-Bull Food Pantry! Your gift will help fight the food insecurities our students face and allow them to focus and succeed in the classroom. Thank you!
