Food Resources

The student board of the Student Support Foundation offers several solutions for food insecurity.

A few students walk in a line holding bags of food for donation.

Swipe It Forward

If you are a current PSU Student, the Swipe It Forward program is available to provide meal swipes. Please reach out to to start the process.

Community Cupboard

Formerly referred to as the "Food Pantry”, The Community Cupboard is available to undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled at Plymouth State University. The Community Cupboard is located on the second floor of the Hartman Union Building, Room 118. This space has essential items including, food, school supplies, toiletry items, and small appliances.

  • Access the Community Cupboard with your Student ID: Students no longer need to request appointments to visit the space, and simply need to request to be added to the door ID access list: Card Access Request Form. This allows you to visit the space any time the Hartman Union Building is open, simply by swiping your Student ID at the Community Cupboard door.
    • Please note, card access is available after filling out the request form. For immediate access, please visit the Student Life Suite and a staff member will happily let you in!

Satellite Pantries

There are additional satellite pantries located in Boyd Science Center and the Human Performance Center. The pantry in Boyd is on the second floor between offices 201A and 201B; the pantry in the Human Performance Center is in the second floor lobby, by the wall with the T.V. on it. 

Donate to SSF

Our pantry is kept supplied thanks to our incredible community of donors. For details about donating to the SSF Pantry, go to Donating to the Student Support Foundation.
