Food Pantry Logo

 Big thanks to Central Magnet School for their record-setting donation!



Our pantry is located on the 2nd floor of the
Student Services and Admissions Center in the MT One Stop,
adjacent to our Visitor's Parking lot.

Students can access the pantry:
Monday - Thursday 7:30am-6pm
and Friday 7:30am-4:30pm.

Currently enrolled students must bring valid MTSU ID to access pantry.

Due to an increasing number of hungry students on campus, the MT One Stop and the Student Government Association started a student food pantry in Fall 2012 for MTSU students who are unsure where their next meal is going to come from.

Interested in Donating to the Pantry? Online donating available, too!

We all know students that are going hungry. Please help us stock the food pantry with some of the items listed below to help feed MTSU students! All donations can be brought to the One Stop, located in the Student Services and Admissions Center, Room 210. The MT One Stop is open Monday-Thursday, 7:30-6 and Friday, 7:30-4:30. We encourage student groups, offices, residence halls, etc. to get together and collect items to donate. You can also donate online using the link in the LEFT navigation panel. Please be mindful of expiration dates as we cannot hand out expired food.

Know a Student Who is Hungry?

If you know an MTSU student who is hungry, please send them to the MT One Stop. Our counselors will gladly assess the students need and help them find items from the pantry. We also have community partners available for larger, long-term needs. That information is found under Helpful Community Resources.

What Items are Needed?

We will keep this site updated to reflect needs. As we run low on a particular item, we will highlight them, but will gladly accept donations outside of the current "high need". We will also include which items we currently have well stocked. Please keep in mind that donations should include non-perishable items that can be easily prepared or eaten as packaged. We have also recently begun accepting small toiletry and personal care items.
