Campus Harvest Food Pantry

Meeting the food needs of our students

Opened in September of 2014, the Campus Harvest food pantry was developed to aid the high percentage of students that self-identified as in need of supplemental food assistance. Run by student volunteers and open exclusively to university students, Campus Harvest is an easy way for our campus community to become a more unified whole. A majority of our products are collected through donations (both monetary and nutritional) from the campus and community.

Ways to help

Food pile of donated cans and nonparishable foods
Pantry staff

The face of the organization, these are the volunteers who will be completing daily operations inside the pantry during our open hours. Responsibilities include greeting and assisting clientele, stocking shelves when new food arrives, and keeping pantry records.

Requirements: Ability to lift up to 40 lbs, availability during pantry hours, confidentiality agreement

Food Delivery

This position requires the least amount of time from our volunteers but is crucial for the continuation of our pantry. When food is ordered from Feed My People, it is delivered to the Davies Center loading dock on Tuesdays between 10:15-11:15 a.m. We rely on our volunteers to transport the food from the loading dock to the pantry in Schofield Hall room 4.

Requirements: Ability to lift 40+ lbs.

Food Drive Assistant

When other organizations contact us about running a food drive, we want to help as much as we can. This position does not require constant hours and availability, as we will only call on you when a food drive is in the works. Responsibilities include connecting with the organization running the drive and providing assistance when needed.
