Spring Semester Hours:

The Food Pantry will not have evening hours from Thursday Feb 22 until Thursday March 21. On March 21st until early May we will have the 5:30p-7:30p shift open again. If we are able to fill evening shifts with volunteers we will update our website and social media.

There are no restrictions on the number of visits to the food pantry but there are limits on the quantity of items taken. Any donations can be brought to the Food Pantry during open hours or in the donation bin outside of the Food Pantry. Most needed donation items are: spices, seasoning blends, oils, vinegar, dried lentils and beans, shampoo, conditioner, baby products/food, and pet supplies.


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. 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.
