Every ounce of support for the CMU Pantry counts.

There are many ways you can get involved:


Volunteer at the CMU Pantry! Our volunteers are the backbone of the entire Pantry, assisting our shoppers, sorting and labeling goods, and keeping our records up to date.

If you would like to register and be trained as a volunteer, please email the Pantry.


Donate to the CMU Pantry! The CMU Pantry gladly accepts donations to keep the pantry stocked with a healthy variety of food for our student shoppers. In addition to non-perishables, donations of hygiene products and school supplies are also appreciated.

Have an extra can opener, crock pot, or other useful kitchen items? Contact to see if those items are currently needed or to coordinate the drop-off for your donation. 

Food Drive

Host a food drive! Food drives are a great way to get involved to help address student food security. Contact our Pantry Coordinator at to learn more!
