Keeping Campus Fed

Update 1/13/22

We are currently having some supply issues and have been unable to refill the food pantry. We are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. In the mean time please refer to our resources below for more options.

The Food Pantry is Open

Hours will be Monday through Friday 7:00am-5:00pm and will follow the University holiday closures schedule.

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 University Police building. There are no restrictions on the number of items that can be taken or limits on food pantry visits.

How to ​Access:​

The CU Anschutz Food pantry is located in Building 407, press the buzzer and a staff member will provide you access to the food pantry. 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 donations can be made to the donation box within the University Police building entrance.
