USF Food Pantries
With the coronavirus pandemic, many of our students have jobs that have been suspended due to closures or limited hours of operation and therefore are experiencing loss of income. To assist those who cannot afford groceries, the food pantries on each of our campuses are ramping up operations in anticipation of the increased need by our students.
To make a contribution to any of the pantries, please use the links below:
As of March 24, the pantries have sufficient supplies to last for a couple of weeks as long as the demand does not increase significantly. In an effort to prepare for increased demand, we are holding a donation drive of non-perishable items that are unopened, within expiration dates and dent-free.
Requested Non-perishable Items for USF Food Pantries*:
- Boxed/shelf-stable milk
- Canisters of oats
- Canned beans
- Canned fruit
- Canned meats (chicken, tuna, etc.)
- Canned vegetables (besides green beans)
- Macaroni and cheese
- Pasta sauce
- Peanut butter
- Personal hygiene items (toothpaste, bar soap, deodorant, etc.)
- Recycle bags
- Sanitary supplies for employees: wipes, liquid soap, sanitizer, gloves
- Soup (preferably not condensed)
*Please ensure all items are unopened, within expiration dates and dent-free.
