Student Life and Leadership developed a Food Pantry program for students in need at both Red Mountain and Southern/Dobson campuses.  We are currently accepting donations, and will accept donations on an ongoing basis throughout the year.  Please help us spread the word by encouraging students, staff, and faculty to donate a variety of canned food and non-perishable food items (not expired, please).

Items to consider:

  • Tuna
  • Soup
  • Ramen
  • Canned Fruit
  • Beans/Chili
  • Cereal
  • Tomato/Pasta Sauce
  • Pasta/Rice
  • Gravy
  • Hamburger/Tuna Helper
  • Powder Milk/Broth Powder
  • Snacks
  • Disposable Utensils (sealed package)
  • Toiletries (new)
  • Almond Milk (non-refrigerated)
  • Anything that will make a quick lunch on campus or an evening meal for a family at home. 
  • Individual sizes are preferred (i.e. cereal), but all are accepted.

Thank you for your support in filling the empty shelves and also for referring those in need to our area.
