Food Pantry

Welcome to the Binghamton University Food Pantry!

Welcome to the Binghamton University Food Pantry, member of the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and CHOW.  This is a temporary, judgment-free place for students facing hard times, such as running short of money for the month or other emergency situations.

If students find themselves needing more long-term assistance, they are encouraged to take advantage of the services offered by the CARE Team in the Office of the Dean of Students

REMINDER: The campus food pantry is not a grocery store. We exist to serve those who are encountering financial hardship, emergency food shortages or other pressing personal issues that prevent the purchase of, or access to, sufficient amounts of food. We ask that our service be used selectively and only when needed. If you would like information about other emergency food access options or budgeting resources, visit our resources page.

Why we offer a pantry

Food insecurity has increasingly become an issue on college and university campuses and can pose a significant barrier to student success. Many students come to campus with limited resources and little experience managing their needs. Hunger makes it difficult to study, sleep or engage in academics and social activities at the same level as peers. If our students' physiological needs aren't being met, it ultimately decreases the chances of them meeting their full potential and their overall experience at Binghamton University. The pantry is equipped to provide a variety of food and personal care items for our students in need.
