Food Pantry Donations

Families are invited to please consider donating to our food pantry. Our food pantry serves those students who who may be experiencing food insecurity; who might not have financial means to purchase a meal; or those with medical conditions who might need to eat regularly or might have an unexpected emergency need.  We keep items at both the Wilkins Studios and Lowry building.

Donated food items need to be shelf-stable, individually wrapped, single-serve, not require can opener or other kitchen tools; microwavable is okay. Sorry, but we cannot accept expired items or items past their sell by/best by date.

  • Slim-Jim or similar meat sticks
  • Individual pouches of tuna
  • Granola bars/breakfast bars of any variety
  • Individually packaged snacks (e.g. goldfish crackers, fruit snacks, crackers, nuts/trail mix etc)
  • Juice boxes and pouches
  • Other hearty shelf-stable meals that don’t require refrigeration, or kitchen tools; microwavable is okay
