Food insecurity is a nationwide issue, and it affects college students as well. Many students, both at Gallaudet and colleges/universities across the country, experience hunger or skip meals because they cannot afford enough to eat. Located at Ely 122, this new and improved Food Pantry aims to address this concern and is part of a growing national movement to combat hunger among college students.

To access the Food Pantry stop by the HWP office located at ELY 103 from Monday through Friday between 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and someone will provide access to the pantry for your selections. First-time users will only need to fill out the intake form once, making the process as smooth as possible.

Please note: the Food Pantry is available for the Gallaudet University campus community only. Thank you!

The pantry is intended as a supplemental source of food, not a primary food source. The food on site is mostly non-perishables, and the pantry is restocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, and non-dairy options. We are grateful that the Food Pantry is made possible through our partnerships with the Capital Area Food Bank, the Free State Chapter (MD) of the Gallaudet University Alumni Association, several Gallaudet departments, and other resources.

Together, we can make a positive impact on addressing food insecurity among our GU community.
