Food for Thought Pantry

The Dean of Students Food for Thought Pantry cordially invites you to participate in this year’s Beat UF/Beat Hunger food drive! In this annual event leading up to the rivalrous football game, FSU is going head-to-head with UF to see who can collect the most food donations. Each item is worth a certain number of points, and at the end, the points are tallied from each school and a winner is announced. This year the event will be taking place from November 11-22, 2019.

Donations can be dropped off at any of the locations listed on our poster! If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out this survey and a representative from the Food for Thought Pantry will follow up with you in mid-October: https://fsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cx4SKBCtD8XfatL  If you have any questions or concerns, please email hgentile@fsu.edu.

The Dean of Students Department runs a food pantry for students who are in need of food. The food pantry is located in University Center A, Suite 4100.

Students are required to show their current FSUCard and to sign a waiver form. Due to limited resources, students are requested to take only one bag of food at a time, but may visit the food pantry as often as necessary.

Donations of non-perishable food items are much appreciated, as are cash or gift card donations. For more information, contact the Dean of Students Department at 644.2428!
