PNW Food Pantry

The PNW Food Pantry is proud to address the growing challenge of food insecurity among college students.

About the Pantry

The PNW Food Pantry began as a pilot program serving students in the Hammond University Village residence halls and has since expanded to serve students and faculty throughout all campuses.

Since its inception in the summer of 2019, the Food Pantry has hosted continuous food drives and has been able to receive thousands of dollars in donations. Weekly distributions are completed by the Food Pantry Committee through Student Life with the support of volunteers from the Honors College and numerous student organizations on campus.

The food pantry is overseen by the PNW Food Pantry Committee, a student-run organization led by Joseph Ignatuk.
