CU Anschutz Food Pantry

Keeping Campus Fed

The food pantry is open to all faculty, staff and students seeking food, hygiene items, and pet supplies. The food pantry is located in the Strauss Health Sciences Library, room 3105. There are no restrictions on the number of items that can be taken or limits on food pantry visits.

The food pantry is open 24/7 to any CU Anschutz badge holders.

The food pantry is refilled on a bi-weekly basis by one of the individuals in Student Affairs. The Student Affairs team is currently working on finding a better way to keep the pantry stocked, but until then, please be patient with us.

How to ​Access:​

Enter the library and take the elevator to the third floor. Exit the elevator and take an immediate right down the hallway. If you take the stairs near the elevator, the hallway is straight ahead on the third floor. The food pantry will be on your left, across from the Record Now Studio. You will need your badge to enter. If you are in need of additional resources and support regarding food insecurity, simply submit a referral and a Case Manager will help you navigate resources.  ​

How to ​Support:

The best way to support students experiencing food insecurity is by donating to the CU Anschutz Shares fund, the campus emergency fund for students. You can make a one-time donation or  make a monthly payroll deduction. Any food pantry donations can be made at the campus food pantry located in the Strauss Health Sciences Library, room 3105.
