Who We Are

The Support-a-Bull Food Pantry was established on the Sarasota-Manatee campus in fall 2022. Partnering with All Faiths Food Bank, the pantry provides currently enrolled students with supplemental food assistance and toiletry items. 

If a student is hungry, it is hard for them to focus on their studies. 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. 

Students can drop by and select their groceries or confidentially order online and pick up their orders. The pantry, located in SMC C144 through the Student Success Lounge in the main buildingis open Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. and Saturday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. 

Our goal is to make sure that no USF student must choose between buying textbooks or groceries so that no Bull goes hungry or halts their education.

What We Do

As the cost of living rises, more USF students struggle to make ends meet. To ensure that no student must make a choice between buying food or staying in college, the Support-a-Bull Food Pantry offers groceries and toiletries to help students when they need it most. We need your help to keep the pantry stocked!

Your Impact

Your financial gift will help ensure that the pantry remains stocked with a variety of nutritious non-perishable foods and other items. Ultimately, your gift will help reduce the anxiety from food hardship and hunger by providing free and unlimited access to food for our students in need.

Thanks to the partnership with All Faiths Food Bank, we are able to purchase food at lower prices. Your donation brings an even more significant impact.

USF Faculty and Staff: You can give online through this site, or complete this payroll deduction form (enter fund #SC0034, USFSM Food Pantry) and email it to fscampaign@usf.edu.

What Your Generosity Will Do

Your financial gift to the Support-A-Bull food pantry will help us purchase needed additional inventory beyond what we receive from our generous partner, All Faiths Food Bank. 

Additionally, donations 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.
