Bearcats Food Pantry

The UC Bearcats Pantry provides free food, hygiene items, and cleaning supplies to students with food and other insecurities. The pantry also provides meal vouchers that can be used at campus dining halls. The pantry is meant to provide supplemental support which means we do not supply enough food to completely eradicate food insecurity. Our goal is to assist students in need by cutting down their grocery bills and connecting them to other resources in an effort to promote independence. The Bearcats Pantry is here to support students of all backgrounds and serve the student population.

The Bearcats Pantry is an initiative founded in 2016 by the Assistant Dean of Students, Daniel S. Cummins. With the help of a strong and dedicated committee team and other UC affiliates, the Bearcats Pantry was created. The Bearcats Pantry also became a member of the College and University Food Bank Alliance (CUFBA) which strives to “alleviate the barriers and challenges associated with food insecurity and hunger so that college and university students can remain in school, and ultimately, earn their degrees (”

To be eligible for services, you must be a UC undergraduate or graduate student.
