What is Campus Pantry?

Food insecurity – the lack of reliable access to sufficient quantities of affordable, safe, nutritious food – is a national issue with local impact affecting some students, faculty and staff in our own campus community.

Mission Statement:

“The University of Maryland Campus Pantry’s mission is to alleviate food insecurity among UMD-College Park students, faculty and staff by providing emergency food to University of Maryland College Park students, faculty, and staff in need.”

Focus of Our Partnership:

To help raise awareness of food insecurity within our campus community and de-stigmatize community service as a requirement but to encourage student engagement to foster a sense of community, volunteerism and service to peers.
