Campus Food Pantry

The Auburn University Campus Food Pantry began in the Spring of 2012 as an initiative in the Division of Student Affairs.  The goal of the Campus Food Pantry is to provide non-perishable food items to aid Auburn University students struggling with food insecurity.  Katherine Hettinger, Coordinator of Student Advocacy & Case Management spearheaded the research and implementation of this initiative.

The Campus Food Pantry is located in the Auburn University Student Center.   It is available to currently enrolled Auburn University students.  Access to the Campus Food Pantry is confidential, the shopping bags the students receive are unmarked, and the location is not advertised.  Hours of operation are set in alternating weeks, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11 a.m. To 2  p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. The Campus Food Pantry is open to students by appointment only.
