Food Pantry Resources

The Student Support Foundation manages a food pantry that is open to all current Rollins students. The service is confidential. 

The contents of the pantry change according to donations received, and occasionally there are fresh vegetables available that are donated by EoRollins. There are also a limited amount of toiletries available. 

If would like to set-up an individual appointment to visit the pantry or are interested in donating non-perishable food or unused toiletry items to the pantry, please contact Sofia at for more information.
