The Student Food Pantry is available to any current Lawrence University student who is in immediate need or does not have access to essential items.


Items are free and students are encouraged to be conscientious in how much is taken from the Pantry as this is a shared space for Lawrentians. The Pantry includes food, personal hygiene products, and school supplies. 
 

Location:  Memorial Hall - West entrance, main floor
Winter Break Hours: Open daily 9 AM-6 PM with ID access
(Nov. 21, 2022-Jan. 2, 2023)


How can I help?

Order Items off of our Amazon Wish List

Items purchased through this wish list can be shipped directly to Lawrence University's Student Food Pantry on campus.

Donate Items in Person or by Mail

Lawrence University staff, faculty, and students can drop off items in-person in the Diversity & Intercultural Center kitchen located in Memorial Hall. Appointments can also be arranged by contacting jessica.quintana@lawrence.edu. From there, inventory is recorded and the Pantry is replenished as supplies become available. Please refrain from dropping items off directly in the Pantry as inventory is recorded. The Pantry will not accept items that have been opened or are expired.

Donations can also be mailed to:
